One of the most hurtful feelings a person can experience is shame. It's closely linked to guilt, which can be either a positive or negative emotion based on the circumstances surrounding it. For everyone, shame is difficult to work through and creates a spiral in which we end up feeling bad not only over what might have happened but over feelings themselves. 7 Cups is ready to help with online counseling for shame that can assist anyone looking to work through the heartache of shame.
The Shame Spiral
When we experience shame, whether, through our own actions or those of someone else, we can begin to spiral down into a repetitive cycle that feeds more and more shame. This happens when instead of confronting the thing that caused us shame we focus on the feeling itself. Other things we might feel ashamed of will creep into our thoughts, and we'll focus on our perception of being a terrible person. This is not reality, but can certainly begin to feel like it.
