Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live. I am happy to see that you decided to stop by to visit with me. Thank you. Today I am going to present the 6th part of the article, Living with a Traumatic Brain Injury and the Grieving Process In my experience, I had to address the matters that I speak about in this series to be able to face denial systems that blocked my ability to accept myself as an individual.
Until I did the work, I found myself justifying, answering and explaining myself away. My resentments kept me shackled to the denial system that stymied my ability to discover who I was as an individual beyond the denial system.
Below is an excerpt of Part 6 of the article:
“In part 6 of this series the concept of resentments being the key to open the door to isolation and self-reproach will be explored.
My resentments in effect held the key to the door of my isolation and my self-reproach. In my experience, I found that I needed to determine who I held resentments towards and why I sought to maintain those resentments towards those individuals –family, places, churches, significant relationships and institutions — so that I could come out of my isolation and be free of self-reproach.
In my desire to be free of my resentments I needed to make a list of the people that I resented. Next I needed to ask myself a series of questions regarding the people that I resented. I needed to determine what I believed those individuals did to me, how my life as a result – i.e. my self-esteem, emotions, security, ambitions as well as my personal and sex relationships. Next I needed to explore how the situation that led to my resentment make me feel? I then needed to determine how I responded to the event.
Next I needed to examine what my part was that led to my resentment — how I contributed / participated in / to the situation that led to my resentment. Was I self-fish, dishonest, self-seeking, frightened, inconsiderate, ect? Lastly I needed to examine what I did right – if anything — in the situation that led to my resentment.”
