I find Eleanor's life very inspiring and this book is loaded with details I wasn't aware of.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I struggled with a situation that for years I couldn't figure out what was happening. This book gave me the knowledge to understand the situation. Shame can be such a subtle thing especially when you feel like the person/people are well intended. If you have ever walked away from conversations not knowing why you feel like crap after talking to certain people then this book my help you. Also if you struggle with perfectionism then this book might help you get to the root of it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of I Thought It Was Just Me (but it isn’t)?

When she explained the difference between empathy and sympathy.

What did you learn from I Thought It Was Just Me (but it isn’t) that you would use in your daily life?

I think I will practice more empathy with others. I'm better able to spot shame even if it's subtle.
