WHO IS THE MAKER OF THE FILM?
Lois as an expert presented her views in the form of a film named “Im Good film” with galvanizing energizes the thoughts we discussed above. Her name is Lois Hollis. She described and dramatized from what she experienced in her early and later life so she could relate to others. She shared her solutions to those suffering in the same manner to create a sense of positivity. Lois Hollis has produced an awesome film, which contributes to defeating shame and guilt from her local society and the entire human race. She dedicated her film to her daughter named Angel Estelle Hollis.
Lois Hollis volunteered in the field of nursing from the early age of 12. Later she received her BSN, RN in nursing as well as a Reverend. At 78 she continues to serve with the motivation from her life challenges to give her best. She acts like a dire mother caring to save her child from suffering with the things she lived. She knows the trauma and doesn’t want anyone else to face the same demons. For this purpose, she is defiantly playing her best part in empowering victims. She gives a sense of awareness to save future generations to form a healthy society. She works as a shame guilt Educator, Counselor, Filmmaker to fight in a society where people are told, not to talk about those issues.
HER BASIC PURPOSE OF MAKING?
Lois went through a very dark phase of her life when she was 4 to 5 years. This phase of childhood trauma with shame guilt seemed quite normal and acceptable in society. It happened in the same way as it happened with every other child of her age. No one dares question for fear of being judged, questioned, or getting resistance from upper class elders.
Lois was about fifty when she remembered her childhood traumas. Her depression, anxiety, low self-esteem needed to be addressed. She recalled her abusive and traumatic childhood which impacted her life as they now roomed in her brain. Lois became mindful about children suffering at this moment. She worried about their emotional and physical scars. For this purpose, she decided to do her part. She wanted to educate parents who reluctantly follow these behaviors as an accepted task. She wants a silver lining among dark clouds of hatred. She encouraged victims of abuse to fight this negativity.
WHAT IS SHAME & GUILT?
These terms are used differently in our society, but both are the same. The only difference is shame lies in the unconscious part of your brain while guilt lies in the conscious part. Shame is unconscious guilt, and guilt is conscious shame.
Humans embody emotions, including fear, love, pain, care, hate, shame, guilt, motivation, etc. When you shame a child over their shortcomings rather than encouraging with teachings, your child receives guilt.
Some parents feel guilt is normal, but no shame or guilt is normal. When you remain adamant about your behavior, it builds something else in your mind which is impossible to conquer later. Despite attempting to be better, louder voices, rejections, hatred, and resistance imprints the scenario. Your child starts to hate himself and no more wants to exist in a world full of abomination.
EFFECT OF SHAME & GUILT ON YOURSELF:
Both of these affect you traumatically in a different way, but still, pain is constant. It is like a virus that enters your computer to disturb all of your computer programs. In the same way, it consumes your inner completely. The most disturbing thing is that if you have any physical health problem on your part, you can consult a doctor to get a cure. But these emotional disorders are alarming to address as these are abstract things. It is not easy for a depressed patient to live his life normally as you are living. There are never-ending voices and echoes in his brain, and he pretends like living out of this chaos.
There is no way to explain the dark and loneliness surrounding the victim. A continuous sense of negativity accompanies him for the rest of his life for taking productivity out. You can’t concentrate on your work, there is no hope for the future, and ultimately you don’t want to live your life. Depression ruins your happiness and peace. It ruins your relationship. You don’t open in front of others to resist the negativity you own in your brain. You take it all on your own, and then the burden increases. You find yourself alone because you separated yourself. All you got from the other side were rejections, hatred, judgments. It added to this mess further. You feel there is no option to save you.
HOW SHE FOUGHT WITH THE EARLY AND LATER STAGE TRAUMA?
This is one of the most important questions to address that Lois was telling throughout the story. At the age of 50, after receiving childhood trauma back, she had the same life as she had at the time of happening. Anxiety, depression, sorrows, hues, cries all were residing like permanent partners of her life. She was in the field of nursing for a long time, so being health-conscious, at least she accepted that those demons were living like unwelcomed guests with her. There was a fact that was continuously revolving around her, “I don’t need them, they need me.” It was a time of self-realization and getting enough self-esteem to perform her part in fighting her tragic war. Lois too was among those victims who remain suicidal.
TAKING HELP FROM EXPERTS:
For such people, the only way to get rid of these sufferings is taking their lives, but for Lois Hollis, it was fighting and defeating them. For this purpose, she got some help from some experts in this field. But still, something was missing in her life for which she was continually questioning herself. While finding among wonders, she finally met with the reality where she accepted that all of these emotions are part of her life. Some of them are bad, and some are good too. Lois soon learned that she needed to address her inner critic to throw those evils out of her life.
Your inner critic being rational, always repeats those negative thoughts in your life because it is what it does exist for. A continues resistance from your side for not helping it will include you among patients. She was a warrior for herself and others too. She made a sincere effort to combat the real problem. In her good imaginations, she used to have two children or a husband representing a happy family in her fantasy world. There were many other children in her surrounding from where she got a sense of positivity for a fight. On the other hand, there were also some rejections for making her acknowledge those facts that she is supposed to fight in her real world.
WHAT WAS THE BEST PART OF THE MOVIE?
No doubt, the best part was that it was a real-life story rather than truthfully depicting the matter. The author herself had to go through the phase to write and say the words she presented in the film. She is a role model for a fighter to get motivation. The film encourages victims who still consider themselves not worthy to fight. You can conquer the world in the same manner as she did. As a woman, she depicted an excellent example. Today, she is strong to teach you how to take the first step.
