How I processed my shame | #40

Listen to the Full Episode:

I want to shared a personal experience of processing shame and how I turned it into a proactive solution. Here are the key takeaways from this thought-provoking episode:

1. Embrace a Curiosity Pause: When facing strong negative emotions, implement a curiosity pause to acknowledge the emotion and redirect your mind from self-judgment to a more neutral reaction. It’s a powerful practice that can help you process and navigate shame and other challenging emotions effectively.

2. Name and Locate Emotions in Your Body: Take the time to name the emotion you’re experiencing and then scan your body from head to toe to identify where that sensation is sitting. This simple exercise can help you understand the physical impact of your emotions and build awareness around how they manifest in your body.

3. Don’t Make Yourself Invisible: Whether you need accommodations like transcripts for audio materials, larger prints, or alternative presentation delivery methods, never hesitate to ask. Seeking help is a form of self-care. Don’t be afraid to advocate for your needs and make yourself visible.
