Shame Quotes For Dealing With Self-Conscious Emotions

Hold your head up high and check out these shame quotes.

What is shame? Well, that depends on who you ask.

Across cultures, shame has different origins and conditions.

For the most part, we can all agree that shame is a self-conscious emotion arising from the sense that something is fundamentally wrong.

However, shame is sometimes challenging to identify because it may be outside of our conscious awareness, making it very hard to label.

Psychologists suggest that those with more shame may also have more interpersonal anxiety and submissive responses to anger.

Western science has grouped shame into two different types; state shame and trait shame.

State shame is a momentary experience, like when you realize you have been walking around with toilet paper stuck to your shoe.

The other is known as ‘trait shame’ because it acts like a personality trait or something we carry with us wherever we go.

If you’ve been feeling stuck, use these shame quotes to inspire you to move past it.
