Perasaan yg tak dapat dibendung..

That horrible feeling called shame.


When we feel guilt, it's about something we did.
When we feel shame, it's about who we are.

Shame comes from being taught that we are worthless or bad or something similar.

It comes in childhood from adults who say things like:

    "You'll never amount to anything!"
    "You are worthless!"
    "I wish you were never born!"
    "Shame on you!"

People who are shamed have to live in the same world as all the rest of us but they have to live in it with the deep-down conviction that they are worthless.

People who've been deeply shamed need to be fully loved and accepted and valued!
