No one can make you feel shame except you.
The reason so many people stop growing in life and instead become bitter and resentful is because they’ve given in to feelings of guilt and shame. They’ve let other people make them feel ashamed of their talents, for their shortcomings, and for everything else in between. When feelings of shame crop up in your life, you must work to destroy them as quickly as possible. You must acknowledge your feelings and then remind yourself why your feelings are unfounded. Your life and what you do with it is in your hands. Never let anyone make you feel ashamed for who you are or for the choices you’ve made. Never be ashamed of your gifts. Never be ashamed of not having more friends or of saying “no” to others. Here are 5 things you should never be ashamed of.
