Until we understand toxic shame and how shame is internalized and moves from being a feeling to being a toxic state of being, so the person is shame based. That core of a person life becomes so painful that the person must develop defenses.

John Bradshaw Self Esteem Quotes

  • We need to be valued for the special person we are. We need to see all of our selves in the eyes of our caretakers as we interact with them.
  • Only through this honest, truthful, sharing and mirroring can we recover our self-esteem. My shame said that I was flawed, defective and unacceptable. The pain of my addiction finally forced me to show myself. When I showed myself, I found that I was accepted and loved. I recovered my sense of self-esteem.
