Adult Children of Alcoholics-Guilt and Shame
in reading posts in this forum i find many ACOA's experience so much shame and guilt. guilt and shame imposed on their personalities to compensate for their experiences growing up in an alcoholic family. there's so much damage psychologically to the ACOA. it helps i think to identify the distorted ideas/feelings and how one obtains them in their daily living. the ACOA imho is not the guilty one. they are the survivors. i hope this article may be useful. knowing the origin of behaviors may be helpful in healing
Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle.
The world you desired can be won. It exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours..~Ayn Rand
