Shame has a horrible reputation these days.

It’s common to conceive of all shame as “poison,” and that no one should make you feel embarrassed.

Experiencing shame as a result of events beyond your control is both unneeded and harmful. You can’t spend time feeling ashamed by the views of people you don’t know or respect in our varied, atomistic world.

But a lot of guilt is really beneficial – it’s a gift.

Shame, as Carlin Barton points out in Roman Honor, may be a gift to yourself, allowing you to realize where you’ve fallen short, but it can also be a gift to others.

To feel embarrassed in front of someone whose trust you’ve betrayed, whose expectations you’ve let down, and whose spirit – which they entrusted to you – you’ve squandered is to recognise their humanity. Showing your guilt ensouls someone, while demonstrating its absence desouls him, as philosopher Max Scheler puts it.

Shame is a suitable sacrifice to deliver to someone you’ve harmed, as well as a fitting homage to pay to someone who excels in talent, knowledge, or virtue. Feeling a visceral sting of awe and terror in the presence of someone who exemplifies a greater morality, who does life better, who lives and comports himself in a manner you wish you would, is a sign of a modest, healthy soul. Being humiliated when one comes across such a wonderful person compliments him (and hopefully prompts you to be better yourself).

It’s natural to wish to be free of shame in your own life. Shame, on the other hand, isn’t just about you. It’s a gift that you give to someone else. What a filthy world it would be if we all become completely… shameless.
