In brief: Time & action

Shame, like pain, is one way we know something's off about our body or mind.
Both can be quite helpful signals but also can become problems themselves. First step is to identify the source and decide if there is anything you can do about it--now or for furture similar cases. If you're stuck, a brief case of therapy may help, especially if this feels like a pattern for you.

In brief: Shame

If your shame is constant i would advise seeing a mental health professional who can help you uncover the origin and help you learn to have a less critical self voice.
Consider read ingmy book "changing your self voice" featured on the sounmdinz.Org website for insight into this difficulty.

In brief: Shame

Shame is just about the darkest emotion people can face.
It presupposes that there's an audience to our alleged wrongdoings, and that devastating judgement will be passed. Something to remember is that everyone has something they feel ashamed about; it's inescapable. Find a reputable psychotherapist to speak with. Getting it off one's chest in a safe, nonjudgmental place is the first step.

In brief: Shame

Shame has been misunderstood.
Shame has always with us ;we are born with the ability to feel it. It is only telling us that something is wrong and needs to be fixed therefore it is a very positive feeling. If we don't fix the problem it can get out-of-control and then becomes toxic shame. Guilt is different , it has shame in it but it's the fear of getting punished. Explore: brianlynchmd.Com.
