The Gifts Of Imperfection is a truly inspiring book dedicated to wholehearted living, self compassion and shame resilience....all things I need. I love amd accept myself more because of this book. thank you!
Her books, TEDTalks, interviews, etc always give me courage to be more open, honest, vulnerable and whole hearted. This is one of my favorites of her work.
Wife, Mama, and commuter-student listening on the way to Portland and Monmouth, Oregon. Also during laundry-folding and using the treadmill.
I love the qualitative research Brene Brown founded her book on. I think this adds a tremendous deal of depth to each note of her writing, anecdotes and all.
I find each of her ancedotes memorable, but especially remember her short little stories about how her daughter Ellen has been living out what Brene has been learning and living. Also, the anecdote about the man in the yellow IZOD sweater. Played that one for my husband which prompted some great vulnerable and deep conversations.
Hm. Well, I prefer to hear Brene Brown "talk/conversate" her work. I would say "perform" usually when describing a narrator but there is something so organic and approachable about Brown's narration style from previous work. I feel like she's talking to me on the couch when I listen to Brene. Lauren Fortgang was alright, but not comparable to Brene Brown.
Gosh, as much as I can! I started seeing a counselor again after listening to this book. I have never been great at being honest about how I feel shame. This book was catalytic and healing for me.
Beautifully narrated. I enjoyed how connected i felt to the information and how it felt natural, doable. 'Whole hearted living', naming and bring awareness to what should be natural for us, but we so avoid without realising it is what we are avoiding. This book like each of us, is full of gifts.
