Loved it passionately, took forever to finish but worth the time - it helped me see a lot about my life that I hadn't been able to understand or change before. Thank you for this book!

What does it take to be secure in our sense of belonging and self-worth? We may hustle to attain this security through achievements, meeting expectations, or repeating affirmations to ourselves - but Dr. Brené Brown's research has shown there is ultimately one obstacle to our sense of worthiness. “Shame is the barrier,” she teaches, “and building shame resilience is how we overcome it.”

Brené speaks with a warmth and experience that is a joy to listen to. I had so many "aha" moments listening to her talks that I can never think about my life the same way again.

Highly recommended.
