Unlearn shame

Instructions

  1. Talk about shame and acknowledge what you are ashamed of.
    What are the five things that you are ashamed of? Write them down and acknowledge them. 
  2. Accept what makes you feel ‘not-good enough’ in front of a trusted individual.
    Talk to someone trusted. Accept these issues that cause you shame. Be in touch with your vulnerability. Shame derives its power from being hidden and unspoken, once you’ve accepted it, you can easily move past it. 
  3. Explore the origin of your shame.
    Explore and reflect where that shame stems from. For example, did someone tell you as a child that you were weak at solving mathematical equations? Where did you first get the idea of “not being enough” or being “unable to do” a particular task?
  4. Look for evidence about the validity of your shame.
    Find evidence for or against it. For example, were you actually unable to do math questions or were you just scared of failing at doing them?
