Kill the beast
Shame is a beast. It stalks you in the night, attacking with accusations.
I will never be __________ enough.
Who am I to try _________?
I don’t have what it takes.
I hate myself.
If they really knew me…
If they knew _________, I would be rejected.
Until you are known and tell someone else your secrets, you will never kill the beast of shame.
Today you have a choice to speak your shame or stay silent.
Give voice to the beast and it will begin to die. When you choose to check in with a trusted friend, you choose to put the beast of shame to death. This is a battle of life or death.
When it comes to your addiction, the strategy of suffering in silence is a path to isolation, destruction, and ultimately death. Shame kills your self-worth, mocks your dreams, depresses your hope.
Courageously connect with a friend and speak your shame.
Remember, Tribe On!
