Kim HoneycuttShame, And What To Do With It
Shame is a belief that ‘I’m not good enough.’ You can’t manufacture it on your own – someone else has to give it to you. In this podcast, Psychotherapist Kim Honeycutt addresses, shame, blame the trauma of rejection. She brilliantly highlights our intrinsic worth, our identity in Christ, and the journey from rejection to acceptance.
“So much of our surrender to the Lord is (about) unlearning what key people in our lives taught us.”
“Your emotional maturity and your spiritual fulfillment will never surpass each other, they will always be the same.”
“You’re not born with shame, someone else has to give it to you. A child doesn’t criticize him or herself, it’s a learned behavior. Shame will always tell me I am wrong, not that I did something wrong, but that all of me is wrong.”
“Personality is not who you are, it’s who you aren’t. It’ what you present with so people don’t get any closer to you so they can’t hurt you.”
“John 3:30, ’He must decrease, I must decrease…’ what I am decreasing is anything that tells me I have to earn.”
“The opposite of blame is responsibility.”
