Patient: I jumped in front of her. I knew we weren’t together. I knew I was no good for her. For anyone. And I wrecked her. That is unforgivable. And I don’t forgive myself for that. I can’t and I feel shameful about that. That is what I feel today. Shame.
Doctor: Good. That’s a start.
Patient: How is that a start?
Doctor: You named it. The feeling. You have to know what it is before you start to navigate to something better.
