    "It is my feeling that debilitating shame and guilt are at the root of all dysfunctions in families," says Jane Middelton-Moz. A few common characteristics of adults shamed in childhood: You may suffer extreme shyness, embarrassment and feelings of being inferior to others. You don't believe you make mistakes, you believe you are a mistake. You feel controlled from the outside and from within. You feel that normal spontaneous expression is blocked. You may suffer from debilitating guilt; you apologize constantly.

    Based on seven years of ground-breaking research and hundreds of interviews, I Thought It Was Just Me shines a long-overdue light on an important truth: Our imperfections are what connect us to each other and to our humanity. Our vulnerabilities are not weaknesses; they are powerful reminders to keep our hearts and minds open to the reality that we're all in this together.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Probably not. It seemed a bit "fictional" with most examples having a happily ever after.


    What could Brené Brown have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Maybe varied the interviewees in the book. It seemed everyone was able to resolve their problems effortlessly.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Yes, it read like a fictional book.


    Do you think I Thought It Was Just Me (but it isn’t) needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No
