“Owning our story and loving ourselves through it is the bravest thing we will ever do.” - Brene Brown
“Through braving shame you will open the door to an increased ability for self love and acceptance as well as enhance your ability to connect to others in a meaningful way.”
Why do we need to be brave in the face of shame? Our experiences with shame are rarely identified and even more rarely talked about or shared, making coping with shame difficult. Shame drives disconnection, fear, and isolation. It is the fear that the parts of ourselves we perceive as flawed or the deep secret that we are “not good enough” will be exposed and we will be left vulnerable and alone. When a person is unable to live as they want or to connect with others in a meaningful way shame becomes the basis to a wide variety of maladaptive behaviors and mental discomfort.
