Hey guys! Welcome back. I truly believe that we all suffer from shame at some point. When someone mentions shame I am sure something or someone comes to mind for all of us. I know it does for me. There have been times in our life when someone shames us for doing something or saying something that to us seems right. We have all struggled with caring a little too much about what those people thought. And so if you are suffering from shame right now, this one is for you.
There is a difference between guilt and shame. Guilt is when you feel like you did something bad. Shame is when you think you are bad. We all feel guilty and that is good. It allows us to learn and grow from the mistakes we make. If you feel guilty, learn from whatever happened and move on. But never be ashamed of who you are. Never think that you are a bad person because you messed up. We are all allowed to make mistakes no matter what other people think or say because no one is perfect.
You should be proud of yourself for stepping away or getting out of anything that hurts you. You should be comfortable with leaving the people who cause you pain and misery. You should trust yourself and know that there is nothing wrong with listening and following your heart. There is nothing selfish about wanting to protect yourself and be somewhere that makes you happy with people who care about you. Life is full of pain and tragedy, so you don’t need to stay anywhere that makes you feel like you are stuck there. You should always be seeking hope and peace.
Your self worth is not based on the decisions you make in the past. It is defined by the decisions you make right now. It is based on the person you decide to be in this very moment. You can grow and walk away or you can stay and keep telling yourself that you are not good enough to be better. You deserve to be the very best version of yourself and live the life that you were born to live. Never settle for anything less than that.
I hope that whatever shame you are suffering from right now passes quickly. I hope you see your true worth. I hope you find peace and know that happiness is coming. Life isn’t perfect, you are not perfect, but that does not diminish your worth. You have so much to live for if you give yourself the opportunity.
