    My therapist sharing this with me today. I CRIED SO HARD!!
     
    I am so done with religious people.

    Chances are if my mom lived in those times there would have been 24,000 students plus a "seemingly devout woman" .
     
    Healing from religious abuse is serious stuff.
     
    Wish you can run support groups. It is SO NEEDED!!

    I take issues with the reason that you’re suggesting on why the Talmidai Rav Akiva died. We in our generation are not in a position to label them as judgmental as narcissist or any of the other terms you’ve used to describe them. As troubling as it may be to understand that episode in history, we by no means have the authority or the knowledge to label them as such. 

    Taking a lesson from your speech I will not judge you as a Godol, but rather as a great speaker. 

    Please provide the source of your thinking and reasoning.
     
    If you are interested, I happen to have a very novel approach based on Chazal to perhaps better understand the story.

      If it makes sense, then its true. Don't take it literal, take the message and enjoy it before submitting a comment thar would calm down the fire of someone who read it. want a source? then email the rabbi.

      Besides, he said they were narcissists as a pradigm for the stupidity of "the system".

      He's talking about the rebbes who molest their students and the fathers who shatter the feelings of their children for not letting them look good in shul. that's the narcissists he's talking about.
