Pride and Shame Are Good Friends and Teachers

Pride and Shame Are Good Friends and Teachers

by Michael Feeley December 8, 2022


WE ARE EITHER proud of our work and how we live our lives, including how we treat others or we are ashamed.

Pride and shame are good friends. They‘re opposite emotions we’re trying to make sense of all the time.

If we work hard with love and gratitude and live with honesty and truth, we will feel proud, grateful, and happy.

Shame is also one of our best friends because the pain, distress, fear and humiliation we experience with shame let us know we have been unjust – not fair in some way.

Be grateful for shame. It’s a great teacher and friend to learn from.
