In my experience, I had to begin healing from the effects of shame that the bully foisted upon me. I had to break free from the illusion of power that the shame bully had over me before I could hope to live life on life’s terms.
Through my recovery process and my pain I have discovered that I am still susceptible and vulnerable to being exploited by the shame bully. I have also found that my susceptibility and vulnerability — to being exploited by the shame bully — increases when I am hungry, angry, lonely, tired or sick. Through recognizing when I am more susceptible and vulnerable to the shame bully, I am able to take the necessary steps to take care of myself.
Through being aware of the lies, distortions and illusion of power purported by the shame bully I was able to address a vital part of my recovery process — denial.
A vital part of my recovery process evolved because of my emotional, mental and spiritual pain. Because of my pain and anguish. I was motivated to address both my denial and the denial of family and friends. In my experience, I found that as I addressed my denial and the denial systems of family and friends I experienced a new freedom.
For more insight into what helped me to experience a new freedom please read my series, Traumatic Brain Injury and the Power of Acceptance. Below are links to each part of the series.
