Shame about things done or not done
Guilt: a feeling of responsibility or remorse for some offense, crime, wrong, etc., whether real or imagined.
Fear of punishment: penalty imposed on an offender
Destructiveness: tearing down; criticism
Feeling inadequate: not sufficient; not equal to what is required
Devalue: to make someone not feel valued or have worth

Loose UNHEALTHY BELIEFS AND LIES—bind in opposite
I am bad. (Bind/put on: I have the goodness of Christ in me.)
I am not good enough.
I am unforgivable. (Bind/put on: Christ forgives me.)
I am so far from goodness that I can’t have it or express it. I am pathetic.
It is useless trying to attain this condition. I have tried everything but I am so sinful and flawed.
I lost my connection to God and good by being a bad person.
If people knew of my lack of goodness, I would be rejected instantly.
I will fake goodness if that will get me what I want. I’d rather have ‘feeling good’ than ‘goodness.’
‘The good die young.’ I will take what I want by force. Good people are phony.
I’d rather be bluntly honest and tell people how it is!
GOODNESS IS… Pray and bind/put on all of the following attributes and truths:
Meek: patient and mild; not inclined to anger or resentment
Doing what is right: correct; fitting; appropriate
Being helpful: of service; assist; aid –valuing others
Self-sacrificing: sacrifice of one’s interests, usually for the supposed advantage of others; self-denial
Morally Excellent: conforming to the rules of right conduct (opposed to immoral). Virtuous in sexual matters; chaste
