#186 -- Shame

I read once that there's only one emotion that is just as powerful in recollection as it is on the spot. You know, when you remember an instance of being happy or sad, you don't re-experience the full happiness or sadness you were feeling then, but when you remember feeling shame, you have a physical reaction and it's just as powerful as when it was fresh. Crazy.

So, write something about shame.

Mine is up. Mostly, I'm ashamed of my shame.

Always an interesting exercise to inhabit an unsavory character for awhile. Even they feel shame.
