Shame and Guilt

Shame and guilt are two sides of the same coin, and they bring about the same sick feeling in the pit of your stomach, as well as making you act and behave differently, especially when confronted with your guilt. Shame and guilt have caused many people ulcers and other types of bodily ailments, especially when they are not identified, acknowledged, and dealt with in more appropriate forms of expression. When someone denies themselves the examination of their shame or guilt, they often develop physical ailments which lead to intense physical pain, all in their body’s attempt to draw their attention to the underlying problem. Well, we have all felt shame in varying degrees, and we have all felt like we could never rest easy if we did not unburden ourselves, but for some, this ends up being a way of life. Well, that can cause intense amounts of pain, psychologically and emotionally, not to mention the physical repercussions mentioned above, and therefore it is necessary to remember that anyone who works for you may be suffering from this and may need to unburden themselves in counseling or group therapy. Guilt is overwhelming and it can lead to a desire to cover up the pain by abusing drugs or alcohol. In the end, your employees could be abusing substances before coming to work or after arriving at work. This behavior endangers the safety of other people and it breeds an attitude of desperation and discontent. It is necessary to identify who is doing this among your employees, not only for the safety of their coworkers, but for their own safety, as well. It is necessary to be kind and gentle with them and to help them find a program which will ease their suffering and allow them to return to work without endangering any of their coworkers or your concern for your company assets. After all, if there is not a way for them to seek help, they may choose to keep abusing substances until they run out of options and do something really dangerous. We all need help of differing kinds. To learn more about onsite drug testing & alcohol testing, like the kind that Mediscreen does, be sure.
