Listening to Shame

I love a TedX talk and this one is by Brené Brown who always brings a warmth and amazing sense of humour to her talks.

If you haven’t watched Brené’s talk on the Power of Vulnerability, where have you been?  This is one of my favourite talks and you can watch it here.

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

In this film, Brené talks about shame, which she has researched for years.  She shares that shame is the unspoken epidemic in our society, and behind many forms of broken behaviour.

Shame is the swamp land of the soul and you need to walk through it and find a way around it.

Shame is the gremlin that points out all the reasons why you shouldn’t…

Shame drives ‘not good enough’ and ‘who do you think you are?’

Shame thrives on secrecy, silence and judgement and Brené explains that the antidote to shame is empathy.  I hope you enjoy this talk.
