The Cage of Abuse is what gets created after one has been abused. The cage includes a subtle judgement about the wrongness of you that you take for granted to be true. In other words, you perceive yourself to be bad or wrong because of the abuse that occurred. This “wrongness” becomes the filter through which you experience and perceive reality. When the cage of abuse grabs you, it takes your breath away, and when it takes your breath away, the freedom, the pleasure, the possibility gets sucked right out of your being.
