You’re Still Carrying Around Some Terrible Story

There are many kinds of people in the world around us, each with their own unique history. Some of these are entertaining and amusing, while others are awful. Bible stories involving the concept of scapegoating are horrifying. In Miss Kelly’s book The Goat That Escaped and Survived She narrates a story to illustrate the definition of scapegoat, which refers to a person who is unfairly blamed. The Bible describes the concept of a scapegoat, but the scapegoat was not viewed as a victim; instead, it distinguishes the atonement and reconciliation between God and his people.

Do accounts of betrayal make us question our ability to trust others? I agree with Miss Kelly that when those closest to us hurt our feelings, we become more guarded and less likely to open up to others. This is how trust is broken, feelings are hurt, and traumatic stories are created.

In her book, Miss Kelly describes how a typical story of heartbreak for others destroys someone else and makes their life miserable, turning to unhealthy coping mechanisms and evidently not knowing how to process their overwhelming emotions at all.

Overlooking the distinct stories of other people can make you either sympathetic or desensitized to their problems. but despite that, The Goat That Escaped and Survived is a hope for recovery for those with a history of abuse so they can start the walk on the road of healing.
