The time to change is now.

Wow. I totally agree with what you have posted. I think it is our own selves, who are the biggest obstacles in our hurdle race towards success. We often overthink about the negative aspects and sometimes forget what it might actually be if we actually did it.

All that is required is self-confidence and the will to jump over it. Trust me, later you will realize it was just a small step towards making to the finish line. 🙂

Well, first it is important to recognize it and acknowledge that everybody experiences these emotions- yes, everybody. But they are not one and the same, there is some difference between them, giving shame the opportunity to be the worst among them.

Here is a very oversimplified way to differentiate these very complex emotions by our own thoughts or beliefs:

“I am bad” (shame)

“I did something bad” (guilt)

“I deserve this” (shame)

“I don’t deserve this” (humiliation)

All of the above may result from one same situation lived by different people and vary according to each person’s previous experiences. The same event may cause humiliation for someone and also cause deep damaging shame for another. This is important because humiliation fades away but shame remains.
