Healing shame

Secrets keep us sick. I’m not talking about the sacred things we keep to ourselves. I'm talking about the kind of secrets we keep inside because we're ashamed of something we did, who we are,  how we feel...and we're ashamed of our shame. The good news is shame can be healed. Talking about the shame takes the power from it. Shame only festers if it's kept in the dark.


“If we have one or two people in our lives who can sit with us and hold space for our shame stories, and love us for our strengths and struggles, we are incredibly lucky.”   ― Brené Brown
