LYL PODCAST EPISODE 167: Growing Pains 6 - Toxic Shame (Memoir Series)

In my experience, sexualization caused extreme toxic shame.

Merriam-Webster has a descriptive definition:

"A painful emotion caused by consciousness of guilt, shortcoming, or impropriety, the susceptibility to such emotion, a condition of humiliating disgrace or disrepute."

On today's episode of the Launch Your Life Podcast, I talk about shame, my mother's secrets, generational trauma, discovering fundamental truths about myself and more.
