The Emotions of Shame
Sometimes people have so buried the source of their shame that they live in denial that they have any shame at all. However, the evidences of shame are irrefutable. Shame has many distinct, symptomatic emotions which the person with shame cannot bury. When a preponderance fo these emotions are resident in an individual, it is sufficient proof that exists in their being even if they deny that they have any shame at all. Those who would minister to those with shame will occasionally encounter those who will vehemently deny that they have shame. Using the list of emotions supplied in this teaching is on of the only way to begin to persuade someone to consider their situation and to allow themselves to be helped.
One of the most important things to remember when dealing with the emotions of people with shame is: feelings do not have to be true to be real. This point must be made to those who have come to the place of believing that everything that they feel is true because they feel it. As long as they believe that they will never be free! Feelings and facts are not synonymous. Felling something does not prove that it is true!
