EP#15: Guilt or Shame?

Did you know that there is a difference between guilt and shame? And that if you experience more shame, there are higher rates of associated depression, anxiety and burnout? Mom Guilt is like “I feel bad for giving my kid M&M’s with breakfast,” whereas Mom Shame is like “I’m a bad mom for giving my kid M&M’s with breakfast.”  We also tend to shame ourselves as doctors when we have complications.  The difference between these is vital to how we view ourselves as a Mom, as a Doc, and as a person.  Come and listen to today’s episode and discover if you are shaming or guilting yourself regularly and what to do about it.
