Why do we blame and shame those we perceive as weaker than us?
When a child becomes addicted to meth; do we blame them? Do we guilt and shame them?
What about when a baby is born addicted to heroine?
When we are born, we are born helpless and powerless. We rely on our caregivers to provide what we need.
Nobody is born feeling shitty about themselves.
Where do we get that from?
Does it just appear with in us one day, we just suddenly decide; today, I'm going to feel shitty about myself.
Feeling shitty is much like an addiction; it's like the slow boiling of the frog and it starts in childhood.
When we blame, shame and guilt those who are addicted to drugs, alcohol, food, is it possible that we are projecting the very shame, guilt and blame we feel towards ourselves?
Can we truly say that we are "loving ourselves" if we are unable to love these parts in others?
I have given love to those who had forgotten how to love themselves, and I was told that this was likely something "wrong" in me; we read this everywhere; don't give to those who cant give back. What? Why?
