    This topic is a core issue when you have had CEN. I say this personally as having experienced any weakness or failure as a reason to be ridiculed or disciplined. When you cannot experience a failure, mistake, weakness and have anyone tell you as a child “that’s ok we all make mistakes” or hey “you are an amazing kid anyway” then through out life it gets harder and harder to laugh at yourself or say “yes these are one of my weaknesses but it is a part of who I am.” Turns in to an inability to forgive or have compassion for yourself.

      I agree. 🙁 It is an incredibly difficult road to undo all the damage to our self worth..that may have been easily avoided if only we had been told daily just a few positive validating words. 💔
