From my experience, shame is much more toxic than webster defines it. Shame leads to isolation, addiction, depression, and suicide.It feeds off secrets and lies. I have been doing a tremendous amount of work on myself, and in doing so I’ve been making amends to everyone I’ve ever harmed. For the most part, this has been fairly easy because both parties were already aware of my wrongdoings. However, when you have gotten away with something that you must later confess to, shame starts to rear its ugly head. Shame is what kept me from ever coming clean about this situation. But through courage aka massive freaking balls, I came clean and washed away all the shame, regret, In my YouTube video, I share the story of how overcoming shame will change your life and set you free.
