Vulnerability and Shame- Boulder Psychotherapy News Post


I wanted to share with you two great TED talks with Brené Brown.  She talks about vulnerability and shame based on her research and I highly recommend you view her talks.  She gives a great perspective and I found this very relatable.  Here are a couple of quotes during her Listening to Shame TED talk.

“As much as I would be frustrated about not being able to get my work out to the world, there was a part of me that was working very hard to engineer staying small, staying right under the radar.” 

“Vulnerability is the birth place of innovation, creativity and change.”

“Shame needs three things to grow exponentially: secrecy, silence and judgment.”

Here are more great quotes from her talk on The Power of Vulnerability. 

“People who have a strong sense of love and belonging believe they are worthy of love and belonging.”

“The courage to be imperfect.”
