In this life, you’ll confront the good, the bad, and the ugly—and not necessarily in that order!
In this pamphlet, the author shares 101 tidbits of advice for adults, parents, siblings, grandparents, friends, and others—all in the form of “shame on yous.” Examples include:
Shame on you for not loving yourself enough. You must understand that in order to love others, you need to love yourself. So, start working on yourself and see if you even like yourself. Don’t be surprised. Some work is always in progress.
Shame on you for not keeping your hygiene up to standard. If you work for the government as a social worker, dirty nails should lead to automatic termination.
Shame on you for telling people your problems and thinking it’s okay. They might have come to you with one of their own problems, but you took that away. You’re a communication crasher. You should be more considerate.
When you act in a shameful way, it has a ripple effect and affects everyone around you. Take steps to change yourself and everyone around you with the cautionary words in this pamphlet.
