Shame: Your First Encounter
#1 When is the earliest memory of shame you can recall? (What happened? Were you worried about what other people thought?)
#2 What feelings accompanied your shame: guilt, embarrassment, sadness, anger, depression, humiliation, low self-esteem, low self-worth, or dehumanization?
#3 How did you handle your first situation of shame? (Were you able to talk to anyone about it? Did you self-harm?)
#4 What negative thoughts about yourself and life came about after this incident? If none, what other thoughts lingered in your mind?
