If we share our story with someone who responds with empathy & understanding shame can't survive.
Do you feel like you work hard, are relatively accomplished and capable, and yet continue to struggle to be all that you, deep down, envision that you can be? Perhaps the traumas of your past - emotional neglect or abuse by a loved one - somehow keep you from feeling connected to your true inner self. Perhaps a source of your discontent is the fact that few people understand your multiple identities, your transnational, cross-cultural or multiracial self. Perhaps buried emotions from the past keep you from being fully present as a parent, and you long to feel more connected with your child(ren) and enjoy them more.
