What is shame?

by Dr. Kathleen Hall

Callie,Shame is when we feel flawed. Shame is toxic and is like living with an invisible cloud over our hearts. Shame usually had its genesis in our childhood with issues concerning our original families. Shame is difficult to sort out alone, and I continue to find it sad that so many of us have spent our life plagued with shame. Shame is a

stumbling block to experiencing true happiness. Toxic shame can lead to depression, and your body may literally shut down.
