SHAME: Shattering Illusions




Ever feel like shame is holding you back from living your life? ๐Ÿšซ๐Ÿ˜•


You're not alone. ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ‘ฅ


Shame is a deep-seated emotion that can permeate our entire being, making us feel almost paralyzed. ๐Ÿฅถ It often feels like a heavy weight ๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ that keeps us from accepting ourselves.


However, shame can also manifest as:


โžก๏ธ a desire to make yourself as small as possible, if not invisible, ๐Ÿœ๐Ÿ™ˆ

โžก๏ธ hoping that you donโ€™t see someone you know unless it was specifically pre-arranged ๐Ÿ™‰๐Ÿ“…

โžก๏ธ stiffness in your body (which often leads to headaches) ๐Ÿค•โ›”

โžก๏ธ an internal need for validation, approval, etc. ๐Ÿ’Œ๐Ÿ’ฌ


From childhood, many of us are fed toxic beliefs ๐Ÿšซ๐Ÿง  that distort how we perceive the world, including how we see:


โžก๏ธ our talents, ๐ŸŽจ๐ŸŽญ

โžก๏ธ relationships, ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿค

โžก๏ธ self-worth, ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ‘‘

โžก๏ธ possibilities for a better life ๐Ÿš€๐ŸŒˆ


!!!BUT!!!


Embracing your self-worth, pursuing happiness, and seeking fulfillment are not shameful! โœจ๐Ÿ’– Being happy and expressing ourselves is our right, and everyone can take it back by choice. ๐ŸŒป

Shame completely distorts our perception, but we have the ability to adjust clarity and live without having to put a mask on everyday! ๐ŸŽญโžก๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
