Guilt and shame are two battles in two different dimensions: Internal and external.
Internally, you can feel guilt for something you’ve said or done. Externally, you can feel shame by being the recipient of other people’s judging and blaming.
In this episode, a listener asks me the difference between the two so I do my best to explain how I see it.
Is there a path out of guilt and shame? They can both have an impact on your self-worth and self-esteem so it would be helpful to heal from both of those as soon as possible.
Also, what is a complimentary, dysfunctional relationship? This first segment takes you straight to your ethical and moral compass… Are you ready to face those deep areas of your psyche?
In segment two, someone asks me how to get over their fear of rejection and abandonment. If you bring fear into your relationship, it can manifest into what you fear. In other words, insecurity can often manifest into an insecure relationship.
However when you bring 100% faith, love, and trust into your relationship, you’ll almost always enjoy it more. You could still get hurt, but you can either enjoy it today to the fullest or live in fear and never experience the full totality of what could be something wonderful.
This segment also brings up the issue of manipulative people and how they play a role in your insecurities. You could be 100% loving and trusting, but a manipulative person can use that against you. There are many signs of manipulation so it’s good to be aware of what they are.
You can trust and you can also be aware and conscientious.
There is a path out of your fears of rejection and abandonment and it involves doing something a little strange. Let’s just say you might have to travel back in time to visit a younger version of yourself. That version needs the “you” of today. We’ll take that trip together.
During the close of the show, I share a powerful method of solving your problems. It involves a pen, paper, and maybe even Abraham Lincoln, an old friend, Gandhi, God, or someone you respect and trust. Tune in to find out more.
