Do This When Shame Breaks Your Belief in Yourself
Shame is a powerful force. I think it’s worse than death. It’s debilitating.
When you feel shame, it could be because you're not able to provide for your family the way that you want to, not living up to someone’s expectations, or that you’re not being true to yourself.
Oooo. So many ways to feel shame.
Is shame helpful? Maybe it can be, but you can’t wallow in it. Shame can hang around like an uninvited guest that won’t leave after everyone has gone home.
There’s only one way to dissolve shame from your bones. You have to evaporate it, stomp it out. Crack its back by doing something that makes you feel powerful.
What’s a good decision that you can make, then act on right now? If you had one action you could take, what would make you feel like you could do anything?
Let’s list a few things:
Read a new book
Take a new course
Learn a new skill
Try a new career
Start a new exercise routine
