That visibility which makes us most vulnerable is that which also is the source of our greatest strength. ~Audre Lorde
Tina Miller, MA,CFLE stashed this in Authenticity
Shame derives from guilt and embarrassment, and the only way to overcome these emotions is to talk about them. As mentioned previously, a vulnerable soul embraces resolution skills. The refusal to speak about problems and ignoring them altogether will only fester with time because of shame. A willingness to communicate eradicates shame.
It's hard not to feel shame. It takes practice.
