Go for walks and have fun discussions, ask questions.

Humans have been self-conscious since Adam and Eve.
Pride and shame have continued to be part of the structure of society ever since.
Shame leads to anger and aggression.
Unclench. Relax. Lose your pride.
Be released and made whole, through Christ Jesus, who endured the Cross and rose again to life.
By God’s Grace, we can put off shame and rejection and put on acceptance and freedom.
