“connection is why we’re here”

Brene Brown, Ph.D., breaks down (with humor!) some of the simplest, yet most complex concepts in human interaction:

“everyone has shame… those who don’t talk about it have the most”

“the people who have a strong sense of love and belonging believe they’re deserving of love and belonging”

“the one thing that keeps us from love and connection is fear of love and connection”

“wholeheartedness = living from a sense of deep worthiness”

“vulnerability is the core of shame and fear and our struggle for worthiness, but it appears that it’s also the birthplace of joy, creativity, of belonging and love”

Her suggestion for going forward: Acknowledge that “I am enough.”
