The courage to be imperfect ❤
I just watched the most amazing TEDx talk by Brené Brown, and I HAD to share. She studies human connection — our ability to empathize, belong & love. I dare you to watch and not laugh out loud and feel a fundamental shift.
Her research work on vulnerability, courage, worthiness and shame that has found that most people are their own greatest critics – as she has stated, “Shame is the most powerful, master emotion. It’s the fear that we’re not good enough.” Brown’s central assertion is that “Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy – the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”
For an excellent book that further explores her work, look no further!
