Reply To: how to tap feelings of guilt?
Aloha Sydney and mahalo Peter for your response to Sydney!!
Just a quick note…
I just recorded an interview with someone (with Tim also contributing to this interview) who experienced abuse as a young person as well. One of Tim's approaches you could call a core belief and mine as well is that when events occur it's not our “fault.” Especially when we are young, we do not have a choice about our abusers… it is a situation that we are thrust into.
What is important is how we respond … what is the level of our responsibility.
How you responded when you were young matters not, but how you respond NOW is the key.
So, be sure to address not only the emotions surrounding the abuse, both in your youth and by your former therapists, but also be sure to address your beliefs with PSTEC Negative and PSTEC Positive. Acknowledge and make it a core belief that you have done your best and that you will continue to do your best and improve and learn as you move forward AND that you only improve WHEN you move forward!
And, look for the email announcement coming in the next couple weeks for the interview and some other news. Cool Stuff!
