In psychology we began learning about the effects of childhood guilt, which unchecked later turns into shame. This was spoken in the context of abusive family situations, and led into a long discussion on dysfunction.
I came to find that I suffer from these symptoms of guilt, but I was not “abused”: we just called it being Christian.
It can rightly be said that as a person believes themselves to be - so the are (or act). If you believe yourself to be fat, no matter how thin you get you see yourself as fat. If you think you are looser, you tend to behave as one. If you believe yourself to be bad - you tend to behave that way.
