Tall, handsome and articulate, he seemed put together. That is, until he began to share his story. At first he spoke calmly and deliberately.
Even as he discussed himself he did so as if he was speaking about another person, totally aloof and detached. But then the dam broke. With tears in his eyes he shared with me how he was violated and deeply wounded as a child, in ways that I would prefer not to graphically describe here. Hearing how an innocent defenseless child has been hurt tears your heart out. I too began to well up. But then things got worse. I still am having extreme difficulty dating and building a healthy relationship.
He told me that healing takes time; it can often be a lifelong experience, and even then some things may never be fixed. I asked him for permission to call his shrink and try to get some clarity. With his blessing I unabashedly picked up the phone and had a conversation with this mental health professional.
We need to help them find some comfort in other ways. When I pushed him further, wondering what his role as a healer of souls may be, he finally conceded that some damages cannot be repaired. He actually presented a plausible and even scientific based on his axioms, that is argument: Just as body parts can be severed G-d forbid in an accident, with no hope of growing back, so too can our psyches incur irreversible damage.
Is this true? Do many — and how many — psychologists actually believe that certain life experiences damage you forever? How many feel that some people are actually damaged goods? And how does this bode for the benefits of modern psychology and its interventions? They know they can survive. The questions mount — and challenge our very perception of ourselves, as well as the perception of our professionals.
This can also be experienced when people or institutions, depended on for survival, violate or betray or disillusion the person in some unforeseen way.
This sense of being overwhelmed can be delayed by weeks, years or even decades, as the person struggles to cope with the immediate circumstances. We know that a severe traumatic event, especially one that is repeated or enduring, can lead to serious long-term negative consequences that are often overlooked even by mental health professionals.
Trauma victims, young and old, organize much of their lives around repetitive patterns of reliving and warding off traumatic memories, reminders, and affects. But how deep are these affects? Do they cause permanent damage? Once broken, can a soul be repaired? Are some of us then damaged goods? Are some situations pretty much hopeless?
Do some professionals believe that, but simply choose for many reasons not to share that information? How powerful is the healing process when it comes to human psyche and soul? For that matter, what does our soul and psyche look like? What potential do they have?
Can we ever completely heal? Theories abound about these fundamental questions — cutting into the very core of the human soul. These theories surely span the spectrum from one extreme to the next: Some argue that like all things in nature the human psyche can get irreparably damaged.
Others feel that some healing can be achieved. The differences of opinion range as to how much healing. But the consensus more or less is that we cannot expect a traumatized or wounded psyche to ever fully rebound.
You can compare the different modalities and draw your own conclusions. May the best man win. His name: Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn, the sixth Chabad Rebbe. The last discourse he published in his lifetime was issued for study that very day.
Every year hence, on this day, Yud Shevat, the Rebbe would focus, in consecutive order, on another one of the twenty chapters of the discourse, in — chapter two, — chapter three, concluding with chapter twenty in Then he began the order again. In the words of the chapter: Though, as stated above, the world obscures G-dliness — i.
the spirit of folly stemming from the animal soul can obscure the light and truth of the G-dly soul — this affects only the middos, the emotive attributes of the G-dly soul, but not its essence.
Each and every person has a healthy divine soul that always remains intact in its health. Upon birth this soul enters into a material body and animal soul, which conceals the purity and health of the divine soul.
The healthy soul, which is essentially divine, is aligned with its purpose. But once inside the body and animal drive, their selfish desires dull his healthier senses, causing the person to deviate and get misaligned from his or her life calling. Conflict has been born — a split between who you truly are and what you do, between your core and your behavior. From this stems every form of dissonance. In its more extreme form this is the effect of trauma, which overwhelms the individual and causes a part of him or her to break off from itself and its soul connection.
But — as explained in chapter four of the discourse — even the most extreme form of trauma and dissonance only impacts the emotional faculties of the soul, its self-perception, self-awareness and feelings. This damage is only as strong as the feelings vested in it. But beneath the surface of our consciousness, the core soul remains intact, healthy and as connected as ever.
Indeed, what is even more amazing — as the chapter explains — is that the very concealment and dissonance itself was created for you: your challenges are a vote of confidence in you and your ability to overcome this temporary concealment, and recognize your true inner divine power. Our faith and connection to the core gives us the strength to overcome these overwhelming forces and discover the unscathed soul within.
In a man-made world with man-made objects things are built and then broken. In a world subject to the laws of erosion, aging, deterioration and death, things always get damaged; the arrow travels in one direction, from healthy to less healthy, from complete to broken. This process cannot always be reversed. But in the divine-made world of the immortal soul, nothing is ever permanently damaged. The expression of the soul — its feelings and outer faculties — can be concealed and temporarily blinded.
Trauma can impede our functions. But they can never damage our core souls. You are only as damaged as your perception and feelings convince you to be. Otherwise known as projection.
In truth, beneath it all, on the foundation level, where it matters most, you are not damaged at all. Your beautiful soul sits waiting for you to believe in it and set her free. As Michelangelo famously explained how he sculpts such beautiful angels in the marble: I saw the angel in the marble, so I carved and carved and set her free. Loss, pain, trauma etch their wounds into our psyches. Our pure souls get entangled and trapped in marble, concrete or even more sullied substances.
But their effect goes only as far as our perception and feelings allow them to go. They do not touch the core essence of who you are. Believe in yourself because G-d believes in you. Indeed, your very challenges — the ones that control your initial perception and feelings, concealing the inner power of your divine soul — were created for you to overcome them and seek out the divine within.

Abuse is only possible because there is a climate, an environment, a breeding ground as it were, that allows abuse to fester and thrive. That breeding ground is the utter ignorance and lack of appreciation of the fundamental sanctity of sexuality.
Thank you so much for this essay Rabbi Jacobson. I feel as though it was written especially for me as that IS THE way I have come to identify myself, although there are probably many who feel like this. I am a daughter of Holocaust survivors who looked to their children to allay their pain — clearly setting us up for a fall with this impossible expectation. Then there was an abusive marriage from which I am still recovering… In any case, the damaged goods label can for a time be helpful so as to avoid beating oneself up for all the messes, all the failures, all the dysfunctionality.
And I get the fact that therapists who only relate to the natural world would come to conclude that real, complete healing and true happiness are not possible… but I know that you are right because I have experienced that transcendence as well.
It is not a battle that can be won only once Im afraid, it takes constant work and study and faith and vigilance. Thank you again for writing about people like us. I only wish that there was a teacher nearby to help me delve into and really live our sacred texts like Basi LeGani. Online reading is great, but it is no substitute for face to face authenticity. I am blessed to have a son who is on his way with his Yeshiva to Crown Heights at this moment for the occasion of Yud Shvat this Shabbos.
I have lived to see great Nachas and reward, and yet I struggle every day with a monstrous Yetzer Hara that wants to keep me down. If only I were strong enough to surmount it!
