Good Trouble Season 3 Episode 12: "Shame" Quotes
Malika: I wish I never told Isaac about Dyontae. I should've listened to my girls and just ...
Therapist: Suppressed your feelings?
Therapist: Issac could've chosen to stay and work things out but he chose to leave.
Malika: It's still my fault.
Therapist: Can you describe what you're feeling right now?
Therapist: Shame is judgment turned into ourselves for things we often have no control over. It's usually rooted in childhood when we felt humiliated by a parent, or teacher, or peer. And we carry these painful wounds around inside us these feelings that are bad or that we ruin everything.
Gael: Alright, what's up? Is this about Isabella?
Gael: C'mon, I know you got something to say about it.
Davia: I think it's pretty clear you don't care what I have to say now that your bestie is back.
Gael: What Dennis? You know that's not true. You're my girl, ain't no man gonna come between us.
So I took some sensitivity classes yesterday, and my eyes are open. Racism, it's not just in the south! It's everywhere! Did you know that up until recently they only made band-aids for white people?Scott
I really want to have compassion for you without judgment and losing myself, but I'm not really sure how to do that. I know you're hurting, but I'm hurting too. It hurt so much, and I couldn't talk to anyone who didn't know about Jacob, and everyone kept asking me 'Where's Dennis' and 'Why did he leave,' and I just didn't know what to say. Anyway, we both live here, and I don't want to be mad at you anymore, so I forgive you for leaving, and just because I don't trust you know yourself enough right now, not enough to at least be with me, that doesn't mean that I don't still care about you because I do.Davia
Gael: Listen, all this stuff they're teaching you, it's to make you feel bad about yourself. We all make mistakes. It doesn't mean we're sinners, especially if you own up, and take responsibility, and make it right. You're a good boy. Try to love yourself. Because God made you perfect just the way you are.
Young Gael: Okay. You too.
We're having a Coterie baby!Malika
Since we're all sharing, um, I have something I want to add. I had a son. His name was Jacob, and he died when he was six years old. A few of you already know this, but I mostly kept it to myself because I couldn't deal with talking about it or people feeling sorry for me, but I know that I need to move through all of this, and y'all are like my family. I can't hide anymore.Dennis
