Turning your pain & shame into power requires a shift in perspective. Instead of seeing pain as something that holds you back or limits you, try to view it as a source of strength and motivation. This can involve taking time to reflect on your experiences, finding ways to channel your emotions into productive actions, and seeking support from others who understand what you're going through. Remember that it's okay to feel pain, but you don't have to let it define you.
Identify the source of the pain & shame and learn from it. Use the experience to grow and become stronger. You can also reframe the situation and focus on the positive aspects, such as what you learned or how you can improve. Remember that everyone makes mistakes and it's important to forgive yourself and move forward.
