GUILT IS: I DID BAD
SHAME IS: I AM BAD

SHAME-BASED THINKING

  • We are vulnerable to perfectionism.
  • We are critical of ourselves making us critical of others.
  • We use self-defeating thoughts as a form of protection and escape.
  • You’re still believing you are something that God says you are not.
  • The only way to heal from shame is to move the focus from what I’m not to who Christ is.
