Shame & Defensiveness

"For those of us who have not worked through the effects of shame as children, the embarrassments of everyday life loom catastrophically large.  Defensive pride temps us to conceal our errors, to deny that we are even capable of the same mistakes that everyone else makes." - Psychologist Sheldon Kopp, in Even A Stone Can Be A Teacher
