Learning from our shame: Brené Brown Part II

If you watched the video from my Friday post, this follow-up talk gives a more complete picture of the effects of vulnerability on even the most high-profile “experts.” Brené Brown talks about the repercussions of the first TED talk, and how becoming the “Vulnerability TED action figure”changed her life.

Even she, author of Daring Greatly, had not realized how she had been engineering her life to stay small.

“Vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity and change.” —Brené Brown

  1. She is awesome! I too have shared her two videos.I found the notion that empathy is shame’s biggest enemy to be very eye-opening and healing. As someone who struggles with shame and guilt this notion has helped dial these thoughts “down” (it’s called validation in the language of dbt). Empathy and/or compassion is such an important part of relating to others and helping them walk along their path.Have you watched her two sessions on Oprah? I haven’t yet but it’s on my list 🙂
