I ask because things like these really upset me but I just can't help sympathizing with the victim. If I watch, I'll hear all the atrocious, inhumane acts the poor girl suffered and I'll mentally picture them in my head and it'll be disturbing.
But then, should I just develop thick skin and take it in? I'll know I'll probably start tearing and getting angry, I can turn the channel if it gets too overwhelming for me. But, it's like, I want to hear what she went through and sympathize. Needless to say, I'm fasting this week, and when we do we should avoid everything that will disturb our soul.
What do you think?
