For my 50th episode, I decided to do an episode on answering questions about shame in relationships. This is an important topic, because I think most couples have something that they have experienced in their past which can be shameful to share in a relationship.
It can also breed fear, because if you share this experience from you past, you essentially place the ball on the other person's court and they get to decide whether they want to continue in a relationship with you, or if they want to distance themselves from you. It can be very unnerving to experience rejection after being vulnerable with someone, but in order to grow in intimacy in relationships, these painful experiences must be shared.
In this episode, I discuss how shame manifests itself in romantic relationships:
- back to Genesis,
- the "hiding" element of shame,
- the "oversharing" element of shame,
- asking the tough questions about each other's past, and
- learning how to move forward.
