Healing shame in recovery - Sathiya Sam - Episode 137

Shame is one of the biggest obstacles in facing and overcoming any addiction, especially a pornography addiction. Sathiya Sam joins me to discuss methods to tackle crippling shame, and how to live with confidence and integrity after overcoming addiction. In this episode we discuss:

  • Can you define shame and how it impacts us when we struggle with unwanted sexual behaviors?
  • Why is shame so difficult to overcome?
  • What are the ways that we usually try to overcome it (that don't work)?
  • How can we leave shame in the past without feeling worse about ourselves?
  • Can you describe the "Triple Threat?"
