ADHD and Shame: What Do We Do With It? (Season 2, Ep. 9)
Play • 27 min

Have you ever struggled with feelings of shame, constantly comparing yourself to others and feeling inadequate? Shame can be used as a behavioral tool, often leading to a destructive cycle of self-blame and internalization of problems.  The effects of shame can impact mental health, such as increased risk of depression and anxiety disorders.

In this episode, Lacy delves into the complex relationship between ADHD and shame.  She discusses the importance of understanding the role of shame in our upbringing and how it shapes our perception of ourselves.  Reflecting on her own experiences with shame and destructive behaviors, Lacy shares profound insights on shifting from shame to guilt, embracing surrender to Christ, and finding self-forgiveness and personal transformation.
