I keep seeing the word "shame" in the literature I've been reading and I can't really relate to it. For me, the moment my mind allowed me to know the truth I spoke up - Perhaps I did it so fast I didn't have time to consider any feelings. I've been emotional asleep all of my life and so shame isn't anything I've experienced. It seems to me that shame belongs to the perpetrator not the victim. I've heard people say "you should be ashamed of yourself" but they are talking to the person who has done something unacceptable. I hope that if any of you are suffering with shame you will consider thinking about shame in the perspective. I love you all and am glad I have you all to help me through this incredibly difficult time.
