It might help to talk to them about it.
Maybe they are not ashamed of you but proud.
Your partner chose you to be her partner.
Even if they are/we’re ashamed then thatzzz with them and does not make them right.
The thing is you being proud of you.
My mum has openly been embarrassed of me and called me trash and etc and hated the way I look and am and that I am not so smart and educated.
Same with one who is my father on paper…
He always said how stupid I am ,etc
Not got hot n long enough legs etc etc
Others were embarrassed of me when I was drunk cause I am a hopeless drunk n a binge drinker recovered cause I no longer drink alcohol.
I have my momentozzz but I am proud of myself.
I am not super productive nor educated or hot but I am proud to read Swedish and English and be able to manage my hygiene, cook n bake for me and my partner etc
When I had voices years ago they used to say24/7 that I am ugly inside n out and retarded n stupid and no one loves me and moan and threaten and the list goes on and that I was not aloud to leave apartment because I was too ugly to be seen …etc
I nolonger have such voices.
Wishing us self love, respect n pride!!!️:gift_heart:
