Soul-stirring books

I Thought It Was Just Me by Brené Brown

Ever felt ashamed of something you might have experienced, said or done in your life? Or do you have a shame story that keeps playing on loop in your head?

Please pick up a copy of this book.

It demystifies shame. It makes shame a very human emotion. The stories and sharing in this book will make you feel like you are not alone in this world. It reminds us that all of us have our own shame stories. And most importantly, it shows us the way to move beyond shame, especially the crippling kind that can keep us locked in our own inner box of criticism, darkness and loneliness.


With others, With yourself

Brene Brown: Listening to shame

This talk is a regular go-to for me. I listen to it whenever I feel a shame episode coming on or when I am in the full grip of one, and I always feel better at the end of it.

Everyone feels shame. Shame is normal. To be ashamed is human. And to rise above it, is courageous.
