I define the Pendulum Problem as follows: when someone takes an unhealthy extreme stance in their beliefs for the purpose of distancing themselves as much as possible from their previous beliefs that were steeped in trauma or deception. This is something I'm sure we've all experienced and witnessed. It can be difficult for someone to see the opposite point of view depending on which end of the Pendulum they're on. I elaborate more on this in the video and express why this is an issue and hopefully what can be done about it.
