Live Free from Shame
Shame is a difficult emotion to express. You may experience it as a feeling of not being good enough, a worry that there’s something wrong with you, or an overwhelming feeling that you’re bad, dirty, or inferior.
Shame is the result of a lie you believe about yourself.
If you feel shame, it may be tempting to numb those feelings by turning to other things. You might use emotional eating, retail therapy, pornography, or alcohol abuse to mask your feelings.
