Released from Shame: Moving Beyond the Pain of the Past
by Sandra Wilson
Tags: dysfunctional family, adult children, emotional problems, inner pain, struggle
Do you feel:
that God loves you less than the others?
the need for constant affirmation?
you must work twice as hard to be half as good as others?
terrified of personal criticism?
caught in repeated patterns of destructive relations?
If these questions fit you, you may be experiencing shame. Often shame comes from being raised in a family that has an impaired ability to provide its members with healthy nurturing.
As a result, you carry emotional scars into adult life, longing for happiness but feeling unworthy of it.
Sandra Wilson knows much about "shame-based" families--both from personal experience and from her years as a family therapist.
Drawing from this background, she teaches you biblical principles that have helped her and many others work through painful issues and learn new,
healthier ways to live. In this revised edition, Wilson also includes help for parents who want to break the intergenerational cycle of
shame and give their children a "grace-based" foundation for life
