Talking Shame + Stock Culture with Lorna Dueck

| October 24, 2015 | 0 Comments

The feeling never escapes me. I’ve been in this same scenario many times before yet the nervousness always feels like the first time. But sitting down with my dear friend Lorna Dueck helped me push through this difficult conversation around my past and how I recovered from feeling ashamed and embarrassed of my choices. I never regret standing in my truth. As hard as it is to discuss, I find peace in sharing.

Years ago I made the decision to take off my mask. I started using my story to teach others that there is life after disappointment. I’ve never felt more alive and more grateful. Through the twists and turns I’ve realized that sometimes things have to fall apart to direct you and correct you over time.

Thank you to the Context team for being such a gracious host.
