Shame is a soul-eating emotion according to Carl Jung, but we actually believe shame is a necessary part of being human. We explore the root of shame as we continue our series on emotions. In this episode we discuss:

  • What is the difference between guilt and shame?
  • How shame is useful and morally-required for our social life;
  • How to use shame to understand ourselves and free the mind from self-worth trap.
