Dear , shame is an emotion that often results in a person getting stuck in regret and . Understand that we are always supportive when human are able to and reflect upon behaviour that does not match who they really are. That is an important part of growth. When that becomes problematic is when the person then uses that experience to stall their growth and slip into a pit of self-degradation.

There is a big between introspection and self abuse! Any experience serves your growth if it allows you to learn, redefine, and redirect your path and your expression of self. Introspection will help you understand and choose differently moving forward. Self abuse will simply keep you stuck, which can often result in even more behaviour that is not in line with your truth.
