Hello and welcome back to Two-Eyed seeing, in this episode we are going to talk about an emotional topic that most of us do not want to talk about. This is going to be a little bit of a tougher topic for most of us, because it's just easier to not talk about it. That's the easy way out. But we really do need to if we want to move forward in a more positive direction for all of us, so stay tuned.
WHAT IS SHAME AND FEELINGS OF SHAME?
In this episode, we’re going to talk about shame and feelings of shame and what we're going to get into is why it's actually better for us in the long run, if we're willing to face up to shame and look at shame, and deal with it, as opposed to running away from it. If we are actually willing to sit with an emotion and actually feel it fully for the length of time that it takes. Stay Tuned, and learn further as we go into this topic and conversation, always leave a comment if you have queries about this episode.
