Have you ever felt ashamed?

This is November 7th of my book:  ‘How To Change Your Life One Day At ATime‘.

Take the opportunity today to let go of any shame you feel.

Shame is a very personal emotion. Another which is closely linked to forgiveness and guilt.

If you are ashamed of your behaviour in the past ask for forgiveness – say sorry. If your shame lies in who you are or how you look or how you feel – explore those thoughts. You are perfect. Your thoughts might not be, so investigate the root cause of those thoughts. If they are valid then forgive yourself. If they’re not valid – let them go.

If the way you feel shames you, go through the same process of whether those feelings are valid or invalid.

I’ve certainly felt ashamed, but I decided that was me then, and this is me now. Effectively, the shame was the catalyst for change.

This is hard work I know, but the benefits are well worth it.

That’s the last of the letting go guides – promise!

Enjoy

Stu

  1. confession seems to work with me…be it to myself or another person…Might as well own it…you’ll feel bad if you don’t!

      Yes Marilyn, our shame can often thrive on what other people ‘might’ say or think. Let them know and be done. The relief can be exhilarating. 🙂

    Fab. It’s not my interpretaion of shame or forgiveness, as you know, but I really love how you explain your understanding of it. I can relate to it too, so I’m sure that many others will derive much relief and self-forgiveness from your words. We are so blessed to be in your group. Oh…. and please don’t let go of telling us to ‘let go’! After all… when we have the courage to ‘let go’, we usually find that what we were hanging on to was really only keeping us in misery! x

      That’s so true Jo – most (if not all) of our misery comes from hanging onto beliefs and resentment etc. Thanks for the comment. 🙂
