Rondifer reviewed Healing the Shame That Binds You on
"Shame begets shame." "John Bradshaw came to see that shame is one of the major destructive forces in all human life." "In naming share, He began to have power over it," Actually, it wasn't until I turned my Life Over to God (my Higher Power), that I was actually able to ask Jesus' forgiveness, and stop feeling shame.
Mika A. reviewed Healing the Shame That Binds You on
this book is incredible for anyone who is an addict. It goes very deep into childhood to find the source of what made us start to use in the first place. This book was life changing and thanks to it, I am free from the bondage of shame
In an emotionally revealing way John Bradshaw shows us how toxic shame is the core problem in our compulsions, co-dependencies, addictions and the drive to super-achieve. The result is a breakdown in the family system and our inability to go forward with our lives. We are bound by our shame. Drawing from his 22 years of experience as a counselor, Bradshaw offers us the techniques to heal this shame. Using affirmations, visualizations, "inner voice" and "feeling" work plus guided meditations and other useful healing techniques, he realeases the shame that binds us to the past. This important book breaks new ground in the core issues of societal and personal breakdown, offering techniques of recovery vital to all of us.
