The Shame Spiral

?An event that triggers feelings of shame, embarrassment, guilt or inadequacy.
?Feeling like you can’t do anything right and that you’re a failure.

?Gathering evidence that all of your thoughts are true.
?The urge to quit, isolate, withdraw or runaway.
?Anxiety. Depression. Hopelessness.
