117 – Origins of shame
Podcast: Download (Duration: 45:59 — 31.6MB)
(duration 45:59) This is the first episode in our series on the nature of shame. After outlining the basic aspects of shame (i.e., the belief and sense that one is unworthy or flawed in some irredeemable way), we note that its antithesis is self-esteem; so, practicing the six pillars is vital. Shame mainly originates in childhood within the context of family systems, as the book _Facing Shame_ explores. Within traumatizing systems many feelings are not acknowledged and empathized with, since needs are sacrificed, such as respect and self-esteem. Audios are played by therapists Terry Kellogg and John Bradshaw, who explain the ways that shame arises from abuse and neglect in early life, usually coupled with coping strategies of silence and secrecy, as well as addictions. Raising awareness of these costly patterns and learning healthy strategies are parts of the healing and growing process.
