Addiction & Shame Classroom
Shame is a lie that tells us we are bad and unworthy, incapable, unintelligent, undesirable, alone, unique and different. It also tells us we are elite, better than others, perfect, always right, etc. Either direction, the lies of shame prevent us from perceiving reality accurately, and the end result is unrest deep within us. Shame thrives in secrecy, convincing us to keep secrets about our choices and about what we believe about ourselves.
Addiction, although it looks to be “the core problem” is actually a symptom. Addiction is an attempt to medicate or numb uncomfortable emotions which the individual either does not want to feel or does not know how to manage. Shame, possibly the most uncomfortable emotional state, drives individuals to use anything or anyone in their environment to modify how badly they feel.
