Thank you for your guidance.
Re: "BTW: Minimizing a perpetration doesn't complete it—because such an acknowledgment covertly and unconsciously contains an explanation, a justification, a reasonable modifier, an adjective that minimizes the incident; it doesn't allow you to experience the sadness, the embarrassment, the grief. i.e. I hit, I stole, I abused —without descriptive modifiers."
I have read and re-read this and am not sure what it means. Am I to add my feelings about the different perps/acks to the description. I have felt all the sadness, embarrassment and grief but have been keeping the admissions stripped down and to the point. Is this what you mean by minimizing?
