We think it’s important to unpack shame because

#1: It’s an emotion we all feel. 

#2 We don’t like to talk about it. 

According to most research, confronting your shame story and sharing your truth it is one of the best ways to release shame and all it holds you back from.

The material for today’s episode is sourced from Brene Brown’s book, The Gifts of Imperfection. She herself is a shame researcher and all her references and sources within this book to back up her message. And listen up, because it’s a powerful one. Just this year BRene released an updated 10-year Anniversary Edition of the book with updated topics and segments that reflect her deeper research into living a whole hearted life and not always hustling to prove your worthiness.

Topics we discuss:

  • What shame is
  • How to start building your Shame Resilience – in other words, being able to move forward even in the amidst of shame.
  • The difference between shame and guilt
  • Why sharing your story and being authentic to who you are matters when it comes to healing and becoming shame resilient
  • A four-question tool to kick start your shame resilience
