“Shame corrodes the very part of us that believes we are capable of change.”
How many of you feel shame or felt shame? A great way to define shame is a feeling your whole self is wrong. If you grow up in an abusive environment, you received this message early on in life .
YOU MATTER! Your shame does not define you it, your willingness to change and how you choose to live your life does.
Your shame has no power over you unless you let it. To deal with your shame, you have to become vulnerable and take responsibility for your life, develop self-empathy and compassion and talk about what shames you to loving people in your life. Each time you do a piece of your wound heals. Let go of people, behaviours and situations that no longer serve you and you matter, your mistakes matter, your maladaptive behaviour matters because you matter. You are worthy.
