When we take about shame, it means a painful feeling of humiliation or distress caused by the consciousness of wrong or foolish behavior. This is what we know as the definition of shame, but when critically looked at, we as humans contribute to whatever shame comes our way. Here are some tips on how to overcome shame.

1. Acknowledge That shame

Acknowledging shame is the first step in overcoming shame. People are so vulnerable and so concerned about what people will say. In this world, we all are living at the mercy of God, so, irrespective of what must have happened, learn to come down, from your high horse, and acknowledge your shame, by accepting, how you contribute to that issues, that led to that shame. For example, if you are so desperate to start an online business because others are doing it, and you end up crashing the business, you need to first accept your mistake and move on.

2. Learn from Your Mistake

When anything happens, it is either good or bad, so whenever shame is in place, it is better not to beat yourself up, rather learn from that issues that led to that shame and make amends. It will be funny if you ignore the lessons that come with shame rather you choose to magnify the shame and refused to move on with life.

3. Work On Your Mindset

Working on your mindset will help you so much in dealing and overcoming shame in your life. Until you know that people are met to talk either good or bad of you, you might never find a way to forgive yourself anytime you make a mistake. Learning to know you and redirect your mind will be helpful in you making any decision that concerns your life and business.


4. Study the Bible

Studying the world will help you overcome shame. When you know you have a father, and a friend, who never judges or criticizes you, you will hold on to his word of hope and encouragement. Take a look at the people that have made it in life, there was a time in their lives, where they were ignored and rejected, either by their loved ones and friends. But one thing kept them going, determination, irrespective of the shame and humiliation, they made up their mind, to succeed, and they are not allowing the intimidation of anyone stops them.

5. Choose Your Friends

Some people are out to mock you when situations arise in your life, but a true and faithful friend will ever be ready to walk with you on that journey. Never you hang around negative people because they will never be around when shame occurs in your life.
