Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I am happy to have you around my table. I hope you have been doing well. I have been busy writing 2 article series. I have completed both of these series and am now going to work on putting them into video format. Today, I will introduce Part 1 of my article, Living with a Traumatic Brain Injury — Am I Being Manipulated? Awareness Part 1. I will create video presentations of Part 2 and Part 3 of this series in the next several days.
Below is an excerpt from Part 1 of the article.
“For many years, I felt alone and isolated. For a very long time I had no idea why I felt alone and isolated. Through my process, I discovered that my sense of being alone and feeling isolated stemmed from my inherent sense of shame. In Part 1 of this article, I would like to share what I have learned about shame and its effects. In Part 2, I will share how shame impacted my life and well-being. And in Part 3, I will share some strategies that help me to recognize and combat shame and in the process, avoid being manipulated.
Note: First of all, let me make some distinctions.Shame is different from guilt. Guilt is an indication that some thing wrong has been done. By recognizing guilt, an amends can be done for the wrong done. Shame on the other hand is a being wound. Shame — through blame and scapegoating — seeks to make one responsible for another persons, behaviors, attitudes, restlessness, irritability and discontentment. The impact of shame — through repeated conditioning — can lead the individual to believe that they do not just make mistakes, but that they are a mistake.”
