008 – I Should Know This Already! Dealing with the Shame of Learning

Do you ever tell yourself: “I should already know this!”, or “How can I be so stupid?”, or “What is wrong with me?” ?

In this podcast I talk about understanding and respecting the feeling of shame that learning can trigger, without becoming overwhelmed by it.

Ideas discussed in this episode:

  • The concept of healthy shame
  • Can you be vulnerable around your social circle?
  • Everything is a skill
  • “Therapy magic” – The incredible power of self-acceptance
  • Is it grandiosity to think that we should know “basic” things?
