Description

Moreover, Shame is generally associated with other people, such as when we seek sympathy by exposing one of our vulnerabilities but are instead rejected. This is, at its root, a technique for people to reclaim control over their “weak” feelings by demonstrating strength. It’s not just you, you’re not alone, and if you fight the daily battle of feeling like you are—somehow—just not "enough," you owe it to yourself to read this book and discover your infinite possibilities as a human being. If you are a courageous person who appreciates the value of self-awareness and personal growth for individual and community, then this is a book for you. Even from these examples, it’s clear that a lack of empathy precipitates shame, and that’s precisely what we’ll explore next.

There is a constant barrage of social expectations that teach us that being imperfect is synonymous with being inadequate.How can we be honest with people about our beliefs and, at the same time, tell them what we think they want to hear? I think that shame pops up in almost all aspects of my being in some way--as a person of size, a Black woman, a liberal, a vegan, a therapist, a married woman, a childless woman, a WOMAN. This is a book that will help people, especially women, face, and deconstruct, shame and vulnerability. The topic of shame is one so little discussed but in this brilliant book it is explored but an expert from every angle. For instance, one participant in the author’s study spoke about how her mother persistently shamed her because of her weight.

The problem arises because, at some point, most of us begin to believe the expectations about who we're supposed to be, what we're supposed to look like, what we're supposed to do, how much we're supposed to be and how little we're supposed to be.

If you believe that 'shame' is based on how others see you and whether or not you live up to those expectations, this may, indeed, be your book. This book has been life-changing for me, in that I now understand I'm not alone in struggling with shame.

I Thought It Was Just Me (But It Isn’t) - Brené Brown

But I would not bother to go back again and look for it, because the mom examples are from such a different culture I could not relate to them. If you're ashamed of feeling shame or ever wish to have a depth of compassion for others suffering, Brene’ Brown’s I Thought It Was Just Me (but it isn't) may be the read for you.

The author's writing style is accessible and the book is filled with concrete examples and practical tips, making it a valuable resource for anyone looking to overcome shame and live a more fulfilling life. This can trigger shame; the intensely painful feeling or experience of believing we are flawed and therefore unworthy of acc…. If you have struggled with shame, if you have daughters you will be raising in this world that hope to shame them into being what the world wants them to be, if you just want to understand how to be a more loving, engaged, encouraging person, I highly recommend this book.
