I recently attended a series of lectures given by a priest. He took one lecture to discuss the human feelings of anger, fear and guilt. He also talked about shame.
Toxic shame leads to suicide; healthy shame leads to transformation. http://t.co/5uePej02V0

There's such a thing?
There's such a thing!
Doesn't quite compute -- yet.
But he opened the door for me. His words were enlightening. I'm not sure I understand - yet - what "healthy" shame is, but I like the idea of healthy anything being the mechanism to progress and growth....transformation. Conversion.
What do YOU think it could mean? Feel free to leave an example or share a story!
