“Listening to Shame” via Brene Brown

October 19, 2013

In a previous post, I referenced Brene Brown’s work on vulnerability. This evening, I watched her second Ted Talk and I think I like it even better. For me right now, I’m not in the mood to write the post I should that is connected to this talk, but I had to share it.

She is so powerful and her lessons and inspiration surrounding this epidemic are spot on.


From → On Education, Self

  1. Have you read Brown’s book “The Gifts of Imperfection”? I’m in the middle of it right now, and it’s really making me look at vulnerability in a different light, and how to push through shame instead of avoiding it. The book also deals very well with other issues – powerlessness, creativity, compassion. It’s an excellent read so far.

      No, I haven’t, but I’ve been considering checking it out. I don’t usually get into self-help books, but I’m assuming that isn’t her style, correct? In any case, I do love her work, of what I know about it, thus far. We need more like her!

  2. What an awesome, powerful message! Thanks for sharing. I’d never heard of her before.

      Thanks, and you’re welcome Kitt! For sure, check out the other Ted Talk on vulnerability-that’s the one that went viral and made her famous. I hear her book is good too, but I haven’t read it yet. Happy weekend!

  3. I think I posted this on my blog too! I am taking her e-course currently. You can learn more about me at and what kind of impact Brene has made in my life for finding self-love.
