Default Re: not so sure anymore

There is no set guide saying "you should feel this" or "you should feel that" I'm no expert, but I think you are not angry because you have a very low self-esteem. Correct me if I'm wrong. But when one has such a low sense of worth then they are less likely to be angered by maltreatment as it ties in with their perception of themselves.

Repression is a healthy defense mechanism of unconsciously forgetting events that would otherwise be too painful. If this is what is going on then don't worry too much. It is just your mind trying to protect you a bit more.

Diego is right though. Look at it and ask yourself is it fair that they treated you that way?
