I am pleased and honored to share another review of my book, “Shame On Me” – Healing a Life of Shame-Based thinking. Jovanhanna Kristina is the Founder of Positive Forward Movement where she works with her clients on many areas of self-improvement. Visit her website at http://www.jovanhannakristina.com
Shame it’s a word that I have heard and know I’ve used. I never took much thought into theory behind shame or consider the effects that it could have. I was presented with the opportunity to read Shame On Me: Healing a Life From Shame-Based Thinking, by John Dunia and could not resist. One because I love books and two because I was feeling ashamed of a current situation my family was going through. This is a sponsored post, however I was not directly compensated for writing this. All thoughts, opinions, impressions are my own and not influenced by anyone.
If you don’t know I love the dictionary (thesaurus too)!
Shame – \ˈshām\
a feeling of guilt, regret, or sadness that you have because you know you have done something wrong
dishonor or disgrace
a painful emotion caused by consciousness of guilt, shortcoming, or impropriety
a condition of humiliating disgrace or disrepute
I found it surprising that shame was defined as a condition. As I read Shame On Me and reflected on my personal experiences I began to understand how shame can be considered a condition and the impact that it has on us as emotional beings. This book resonated with me from the beginning I could relate to Dunia’s defining moment and that moment of clarity when everything seems to make sense and you regain control.
