| Shame

  • 1.

    A great deal of shame can arise from self-rejection. We reject ourselves by obsessively ruminating and overly analysing just how much others might judge and reject us. Having offended the customs of society or the group that we belong to, we are disgraced and embarrassed before them, and therefore not considered worthy of its benefits or of belonging. Primarily it is the ego that is disgraced, yet deep down our heart and soul has not been recognised either by ourselves or by the group.
