Our culture teaches us about shame-it

Our culture teaches us about shame-it dictates what is acceptable and what is not. We weren't born craving perfect bodies. We weren't born afraid to tell our stories. We weren't born with a fear of getting too old to feel valuable. We weren't born with a Pottery Barn catalog in one hand and heartbreaking debt in the other. Shame comes from outside of us-from the messages and expectations of our culture. What comes from the inside of us is a very human need to belong, to relate.
