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.
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.
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.
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.

We talk about what it means to be fully human. How do we step out of shame and into the light to experience a more healthy and better life? It’s a huge topic, too much to cover in one episode, but we’re taking our first steps and we hope you’ll be encouraged to come along with us.
On this first episode of Erasing Shame, we take a deeper look at what shame is, going beyond the dictionary definition, and explore what it looks like and feels like, and begin our quest to erasing shame over the course of season 1.

It took many years before I found the courage to get help for depression, because it was so hard to overcome the stigma and shame that I needed professional help. Turns out I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Having help from counseling, medication, and a community of faith has given me much healing and hope for a better life.

My Dad passed away last year (May 2011) after having a strong 2.5 years before that. The stroke put him on a slow and steady downward path of declining health, first with memory loss, emotions out of control, then loss of mobility, loss of speaking.
