After seeing the show Mortified live in San Francisco, I started thinking more about shame and its power in our lives. If you haven’t heard of Mortified, it is basically a traveling show where adults share embarrassing teen journal entries on stage; it is a comedy show, but full of openness, empathy, and vulnerability. When we let shame go unaddressed, we often let it take over and box us into our fears, and I think this Ted Talk does a great job of addressing the shame that comes with weight and body image, especially for women in the US. “Living without shame: How we can empower ourselves” really shows how facing our fears head on takes so much of the shameful feelings out of shame. I hope you enjoy this talk!

What do you think of shame? Do you think talking about shame in the open is helpful?
