How Shame Thrives, and How It Dies:

“If you put shame in a petri dish, it needs three ingredients to grow exponentially: secrecy, silence, and judgment. If you put the same amount of shame in the petri dish and douse it with empathy, it can’t survive.”

-Brené Brown (she changed my life!)

(“In the quiet heart is hidden sorrow that the eye can’t see.”)

“For I am not ashamed…”

-Romans 1:16 (in the New Testament in the Bible)

Shame can thrive, but I can make it die.
