Let’s compare shame guilt to the tale of Sleeping Beauty.

Instead of pricking our finger on a spinning wheel, we get pierced by an abusive incident. The shame guilt poison from the abuse enters us and changes our positive emotions and thoughts to negative ones. Our compassion turns to depression, our passion turns to anger, etc. We unknowingly enter a hypnotic trance of unworthiness and fear. Sleeping Beauty, our logical mind goes to sleep, and the shame guilt controls us.
