How do you guys learn to feel less shame?

I ask this in regards to confronting emotions that you may be feeling at the moment, or attempt to resolve pent-up emotions associated with past events.

(I.e. guilt upon realization that you may have been acting in harmful ways towards specific people in your life, that rare time when you let yourself be angry over injustices committed against you instead of holding it in for the long-term, etc.)

Instead of habitually ignoring them or trying to avoid them do to the possible feelings of discomfort associated with the realization process, how does one let themselves be free of these burdens when they mostly aren't familiar with freeing themselves at all?

Type 4 here. I've struggled with this issue a lot.

I often feel like I am hurting people or have hurt them when I have not. There's usually a good reason for why I was acting in a certain way but I tend to have amnesia about it. I forget how badly someone treated me and only remember how I treated them.

So there's your answer. If you're type 4 you likely have insane ideas about how bad of a person you are. You're just a person, okay? The fact that you even experience guilt is a sign you're a top notch human being.

Acceptance, ya'll.
