That's a great quote, and very comforting. It's the way of our minds to slip back into the self-blame game, to repeat our old, familiar patterns of beating ourselves up for what was inflicted upon us. We were children. It was not our fault. In my case, it was chronic stress that created the trauma, not a particular or multiple event. But the trauma is very real. The blame, however, is pure fabrication on my part.
