How can feeling the need to perform on the outside keep shame hidden on the inside?

Host Eunice Lee is joined with Natalie Hsieh on Season 1 Episode 6 of Erasing Shame: Honest talk for healthy living. Natalie personally shares her experiencing shame as the pain of feeling “alone” or “outside” of a community, or even outside yourself. It’s a journey going from struggling in the midst of a performance-driven culture and discovering a better way to relate and connect with that community.

After a Month of Talking about Shame: Episode 5

Eunice Lee and DJ Chuang return from a week’s break and reflect on the first month of podcasting on this topic of shame: how much bigger it is than we first imagined, what kind of response we’ve heard, and an invitation for you to share your stories with us—whether confidentially, anonymously, or publicly. Contact us on this website or via Facebook Messenger.

Feeling Worthless: Episode 4

Shame is closely related to feeling that we are not worthy of love and feeling worthless. That can be harmful in so many ways. We believe that harmful story can be replaced with a healthy story.

Not Belonging Anywhere: Episode 3

Many of us sometimes feel like we don’t belong anywhere. For those that are bi-cultural, in particular, Asian Americans, it can be frustrating to not have a home where you can just be yourself and not have to explain yourself. Co-hosts DJ Chuang and Eunice Lee talk about several aspects of not belonging and how to get unstuck.
