  1. I want to thank you for putting into words what I have been through and felt for so long. I am looking for a therapist now.
    Thanks again

  2. I appreciate your experience you passage. And I admire your strength. Shame! This was so needed for this day. Blessings to you.

  3. I am currently seeing a therapist. It has proven to be the best decision that I have ever made. I normalized workplace microaggressions and made them acceptable. However, they were never tolerable for me.

  4. Wow this was a thoughtful read. I think we all had some shame in something growing up and we had to grow out of it. We also didn’t have all of these resources to talk about mental illnesses either.

  5. I appreciate you taking the bandage off of shame. For many years I felt ashamed of being a teen mom. I don’t know if it held me back, but it did make me very cautious when pursuing certain dreams. Blessings!
