Shame.

“Shame is a soul eating emotion.”

― C.G. Jung

“To be shame-bound means that whenever you feel any feeling, need or drive, you immediately feel ashamed. The dynamic core of your human life is grounded in your feelings, needs and drives. When these are bound by shame, you are shamed to the core.”

― John Bradshaw, Healing the Shame that Binds You

“Now since shame is a mental picture of disgrace, in which we shrink from the disgrace itself and not from its consequences, and we only care what opinion is held of us because of the people who form that opinion, it follows that the people before whom we feel shame are those whose opinion of us matters to us.”

― Aristotle, The Rhetoric & The Poetics of Aristotle
