Hurt and Shame - February 5th 2011, 11:43 AM

Hey everyone!

I need help, and i'm not ashamed in admitting that. I don't know where to get it from and that is why i'm here.

i've been hurt very deeply a very long time ago, and it doesnt seem to fade away. Little aspects in my daily life remind me of it, and i find myself becoming very upset, angry, and hurt very quickly. i realize that the whole situation was not my fault, and yet i find that i am filled with so much shame.

the scars are very deep and do not seem to heal. However i am determined to feel alive again and experience everything. i have lost my zest for life, and believing time will heal, i waited.

Now i realize on my own i can not do this, i need help from someone that would know better than i what i am going through.

Any advice will be very much appreciated, i don't know the first steps to recovering, and i desperately need them.

Hey, welcome to TH. Are you okay to talk about what happened? If it stings too much I get that but everyone may be able to help more if you open up about your experience. You've said here that this event/situation wasn't your fault. Try to really deeply get that into your head. Place blame where it's deserved and try not to guilt trip yourself over things you couldn't control. You said you've tried to just let time heal it and that hasn't worked. Maybe it'd be good to try more actively than passively to undo the damage. Coming on here for advice was a good thing to do. Maybe try (if you haven't already) talking to someone about what happened and how you're feeling. It doesn't have to be a therapist/counselor, but could be if you want. It could be a friend, a family member, or even just someone on TH. I hope this helped. PM if you need anything or just wanna talk <3
