Sorry but this just lost me. it felt full of lively sentiments but nothing much to put into practice. maybe I didn't stick with it long enough, but the narrator's over affected intonations were grating on my every nerve, I just couldn't continue. gave up at chapter four.
loved it. great narration. my counselor recommended it. now I'm going to listen again taking notes and going deeper into myself. every chapter struck a chord for me. I love Brene and can't believe she knows so much about me!!
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.
