When we feel ashamed or guilty or embarrassed, it's a horrible feeling although not uncommon. However, the feeling often leads to the next step which is to keep it a secret and lock it away forever, and never talk about it. We try to escape, by eating or drinking or going into some kind of addictive process (I sure did). What if instead of escaping shame, you went into it and got to know it's point of view, the feeling it brings, very well indeed? I found, this made all the difference. I found, I knew how to then identify the lie of shame.
