It is possible to free oneself from past humiliation, neglect and abuse, and to be rid of shame and embrace all aspects of oneself. Through nine personal stories from the therapist’s office, psychiatrist Tormod Huseby shows us how to break free of a life restricted by self-criticism, perfectionism and unfortunate strategies in order to be loved and understood, and to regain one’s freedom and love for life.
The fear of being exposed as a bad person and feelings of abandonment, anxiety and depression are common among many people who were rejected or neglected as children. Tormod Huseby also shows us why he thinks that social culture fails us by not recognising our deep need for relationships and closeness.
