    Except in the case where you try to open up and share your shame and your partner does not understand and does not say “me too” and makes you feel even more shameful for even bringing it up. That is a path straight to infidelity.

      Ouch. You are so right that how the admission of shame is revived is critically important.

    Thank you for this post. Shame is a powerful force in my ex. I tried to deal with it for years, but I gave up. I was paying for all the shame and suffering he got from childhood, and I saw no end to it.
