People try to hide their deep sense of unworthiness and shame through perfectionism, people-pleasing, and egoistical behavior.
Shame is a soul wound that must be healed. If you’ve been experiencing recurring negative cycles of emotions in your life, the spirits of shame, sabotage, and other negative emotions are likely at work in your life. These evil spirits are very subtle and can cause a lot of damage before a person realizes what is happening. Shame tries to convince you that you are insufficient and should stop trying. Shame wants you to curl up in a corner and give up, telling you that you’ll never get there. If shame can persuade you that those things are true, it has already been decided for you.
Shame destroys relationships and families, causes emotional instability and mental illnesses such as depression, causes low self-esteem, perfectionism, and people-pleasing, can lead to physical illnesses, makes you egotistical and proud, and can lead to obsessive and compulsive tendencies. People try to hide their deep sense of unworthiness and shame through perfectionism, people-pleasing, and egoistical behavior.
Shame hides in the darkness, and when God’s light shines on the dark places where the spirit of shame has been hiding, shame has no choice but to leave your life. Light and darkness are diametrically opposed.
