What is shame, and how can this one emotion take control of our life? Do you wish you understood why the words of others have the ability to affect you? Find the strength to let go of what other people think.
Don’t you love the wonderful quotes on Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram that encourage us to “Let it Go” and “Don’t Let the Negativity of Other People Affect your Positivity” they sound so lovely. But how do you do it…REALLY do it?
The secret is anyone can conquer their own thoughts and fears, and gain resilience over shame. Brene Brown teaches us how. “I thought it was just me” is her first book on shame, and in my opinion, the best one for getting started, and digging deep. It is, however, the toughest. It is not a quick read. Brene’s work makes you think, and her exercises help you look at your own life and discover where feelings of shame are coming from. It is not an easy task. It is an INCREDIBLY powerful journey that has changed my life for the better in ways I could have never imagined. We tend to put so much value on what other people think, that we lose ourself in the process of trying to meet someone else’s expectations. Brene makes it possible to STOP!
By infusing her own stories, Brene shows us how shame occurs between between people and is healed between people.
Brene’s influential research is not only inspiring, it truly helps us realize we are not alone. You are not the only one.
Happy Reading and Discovering!!
