In recent years, the world has been done a giant service by getting a deeper view of shame and how it affects us and our relationships. Awareness on this is becoming more and more mainstream.
Along with this awareness can come a tendency to paint with a broad brush and to rely on soundbites rather than a careful exploration of a complicated issue.
In this episode, Jackie and Jon take another look at shame and discuss situations where guilt (others like Pia Melody have called it healthy shame) is useful in recovery. Don’t be quick to paint with a broad brush- we’ve continued to keep the experience of shame in our social evolution and in our DNA.
