Brene Brown - The Gifts of Imperfection
Updated: Apr 20
This book helps us to look at our own understanding of our sense of self and our sense of worthiness. In life, we are sometimes led to believe that we're somehow unworthy, whether because of childhood or other forms of trauma, relationship loss, messages of beauty standards, or other "social norms" that we do not fit into. These can lead us to create unrealistic comparisons with others and leave us feeling sad or feeling fearful of not being enough, fear of success, or fears of inadequacy to do the things we dream of doing in our lives.
Social media’s perfect images, perfect lifestyles, and perfect vacations set unrealistic ideals and promote the “I am not good enough” false thought. In the Gifts Of Imperfection, Dr. Brene Brown helps us to look at the themes of shame, authenticity, belonging. Dr. Brene Brown takes us through a journey of looking at ourselves and really leading our lives with an open heart and looking at the fact that we are human. She encourages our minds, our hearts and spirit to cultivate courage, compassion and connection. To wake up in the morning and think no matter what I have to get done I am enough and to go to bed in the evenings when many of us have the proverbial hamster wheel telling us we're not good enough to reframe and shift our thinking to choosing to live a life of authenticity, to recognize how brave we are. We are worthy of love and belonging. Click the book cover or the link below to purchase a copy of the book.
