    Traumatized people can behave in ways that worked for them in childhood as coping mechanisms. As children, these coping strategies worked well, but as adults they are counter-productive. There is a great temptation to feel superior to perfectionists, narcissists, the extremely shy, and those that display antisocial behavior. so I am glad that Tim Hill has written such a compassionate article.

    Yes, we, all are difficult at times, but no one is perfect. As a society, adults should have compassion for themselves and also for others. Living life is hard enough without feeling less than. If every modern adult can realize that no one is more OK or less or OK than anyone else that we are all struggling together, imagine what a more just and compassionate world we could create.
