Prompt #70: Navigate + Shame
Hello Writers and Journalers,
Today’s prompt is Navigate and Shame. This is a tough one for human beings. How do we navigate shame without really diving into self-loathing or making excuses and escaping responsibility? Navigating shame is difficult too because shame is like misery; it wants a lot of company. It wants you to pile on negative feelings to support it.
So, navigating shame means understanding where you’re responsible for something, where you’re not responsible, and using words that are less punitive, less harsh.
The first thing you want to do is think about what you’d like to feel instead of shame, and then you start working through your emotions.
You are worth it.
