A difficult childhood or childhood abuse commonly cause a person to believe everything is their fault. This core belief, or pattern of thinking, affects ordinary, everyday life, often causing shame, excessive or inappropriate guilt, low self esteem and of course depression.
Have you ever thought about where this of belief might come from?
