Have you ever said or done something that you wish you wouldn’t have, so much so that if you never had to think of it again, that would be too soon for you? Have you done things, or had things happen to you in the past that are almost unspeakable in your mind? Have you pushed these instances away and hoped and prayed that no one ever found out about them? Has anyone, at any point in your life, made you to feel that something that you’ve said or done, or even something that was done to you without your consent, was so bad that you began to think that it wasn’t the circumstance that was wrong, that it was you, yourself that was wrong, or unworthy?

Every single one of us has likely felt at least one, if not more than one, of these things at some point in our lives. And what we were feeling was shame.

In this podcast we will discover that shame only serves to close things off, to shut us down, to force terrible feelings into the darkness, where we hope they cannot be seen, heard or felt. And that the more we give over to the darkness, the darker our thoughts, and our lives, become. We will learn that shame is one of the most harmful things humans have visited upon themselves.
