Shame can influence the decisions we make and distort what we see as our normal.
It can be debilitating and have extensive effects on our lives such as stress, social anxiety and self loathing.
Often shame is caused by early childhood triggers that might play out as dysfunctions in our everyday life, like addictions or procrastination. Healing shame - often the root cause - can have really beneficial consequences on our normal life.
In this radio interview by In The Loop with Lucy, on the Triple H100.1fm network by Lucy Dahill we talk in detail about the many facets of toxic shame.
We discuss healing shame and regret and tease out the different types of shame - toxic, functional and vicarious shame.
But what if there is a way to re-frame our thinking?
