"True belonging doesn't require us to change who we are. It requires us to be who we are." Social scientist Brené Brown, PhD, LMSW, has sparked a global conversation about the experiences that bring meaning to our lives - experiences of courage, vulnerability, love, belonging, shame, and empathy. In Braving the Wilderness, Brown redefines what it means to truly belong in an age of increased polarization.

Putting on jeans instead of slacks is not brave.

This is the first books that I have deleted without finishing. After investing a couple of hours, I had to finally surrender. It just brings you down with all of the whining about life events that are trivial compared to what others go through. Not making the pep squad? Being told to wear business attire to a business function? Being asked not to curse at a corporate function that was paying you to speak? Really?? These are the times you felt you needed to “brave the wilderness.” This is not bravery. This is life and she seems to have it pretty easy compared to others dealing with tough issues, ie battling cancer, losing a spouse, being layed off from a career. This book was definitely not for me but may be helpful to a teenage girl trying to find her path.
