SESSION 3: Reactions to Shame

STORY JOURNAL – Session Three

What two things does shame produce?

In what three ways do we hide our shame?

Continue to excavate your story.  Share some thoughts with your group about the ways you have responded to your shame message.  Use the following questions to help you organize your thoughts.

When in your life do you feel fearful?  What circumstances leave you feeling exposed?

How do I fight against the message of my wounds?  Am I prone to drivenness, anger, or a grasping for control?

How do I wear the message of my wounds?  Am I prone to passivity, self-hatred, and comparison?  Do I shut down and disappear when I’m fearful?

How do I avoid the message of my wounds?  Am I prone to numbing, checking out, and just acting like everything is fine, even when it is not?
