Michael Sallas starts by saying that shame is something we humans try to avoid. We naturally avoid physical and emotional pain by distracting ourselves, compartmentalising things and making ourselves feel numb. He asks the question ‘How can we grow if we don’t feel a certain level of discomfort?’
When we walk through shame, when we feel vulnerable it could be the start of a new beginning. If you take full responsibility for who you are and what decisions you have made, you really can start to work things out.
