This is AWESOME and an accurate description. I've only been in a therapy a year and have concluded the same thing! It's truly a matrix... dissociation, cognitive distortion, lie. Shame born out of evils acts committed AGAINST us, not BY us.

Sometimes its tough to see the forest for the trees, though.

Thank you Magellan!
