Has anyone here ever had brief flashes of stockholm syndrome with the people who have abused them? In stockholm syndrome I mean sympathizing with the abuser and or justifying what they have done to you? I wrestle with this from time to time, and would like to hear from anyone who has experienced the same thing. Thnakfully this passes rather quickly for me, but I am wondering in my process of trying to forgive, that it is a natural thing?. any input would be welcomed.
