Masking the Symptoms of a Bigger Problem

Heart of Abuse – Chapter One – Masking the Symptoms of a Bigger Problem

This is an excerpt from the eBook “Heart of Abuse” that is available on the FREE BOOK page.


We are all curious about the reasons why people abuse others and commit such heinous acts of violence. People are looking for answers to child abuse, child sexual abuse, domestic violence, and murder. They’re looking for real solutions that will put an end to gun violence.

People are weary of hearing the reasons given by mental health professionals. Often calling them poor excuses made for the offender’s actions. Offended by these reasons, people are demanding answers and want real justice for the offender’s actions.

The professionals have explained their reasons or theories, and the contributing risk factors for decades. They say abuse and violence is a learned behavior from childhood experiences. That abuse is a normal condition of life due to childhood abuse or witnessing violence in the home.

Professionals say the abuser or victim could have mental conditions and personality disorders, an empathy deficit due to child abuse and various other mental health problems.

They concluded that mental or emotional problems contribute to the occurrences of violence, and we, the general public, listen to them since they’re the professionals.

However, what if the mental health professionals are wrong?

What if the cause of abuse and violence is not due to any of the reasons given by mental health professionals?

I believe they are correct in their diagnosis to some degree. The mental health professionals are providing an understanding of the mindset of abuse victims and the perpetrators of violence. The contributing risk factors, reasons or theories given are diagnosing mental symptoms.

But, they’re not a genuine reason for the existence of abuse and violence. And when we fail to understand the actual cause, we can’t even begin to experience real healing. We will continue to misdiagnoses and mask the symptoms of a much bigger problem.
