“The person who is made to feel that he is continually making mistakes, will then automatically embrace the feeling of guilt for being, as he sees it, so dumb and stupid. The feeling of guilt is then added to his negative beliefs about himself and thus become further validation of his inadequacies and a sad, depreciating and motivating factor in his life. One incorrect perception can lead to another, and another, and another, until the majority of the perceptions he has about himself are do distorted that he feels absolutely worthless.
Remember, even if the perception is distorted and untrue, the mind-body still believes it to be true. When a feeling or thought validates what we already believe to be true, the emotion accompanying the validation gathers energy and becomes more and more indelibly fixed, rooted and ingrained in us. And this, in turn is what profoundly governs our daily beliefs, attitudes and actions from then on.”
Karol K. Truman, in “Feelings Buried Alive Never Die”
