Video: Listening to shame | Dr. Brené Brown

Some takeaways from Brené:

  • Vulnerability is not weakness
  • Brené defines vulnerability as emotional risk, exposure, uncertainty, it fuels our daily lives
  • Has come to the belief upon 12th year of doing this research that – vulnerability is our most accurate measurement of courage
  • As a vulnerability researcher believes we have to talk about shame
  • A quote that saved her this year by Theodore Roosevelt:
    “It is not the critic who counts. It is not the man who sits and points out how the doer of deeds could have done things better and how he falls and stumbles. The credit goes to the man in the arena whose face is marred with dust and blood and sweat. But when he’s in the arena, at best, he wins, and at worst, he loses, but when he fails, when he loses, he does so daring greatly.”
  • Shame drives two big tapes 1 “Never good enough” 2 “Who do you think you are”
  • Shame is a focus on self, guilt is a focus on behaviour
  • Shame is saying things like for example ‘I am bad’, Guilt is saying things like for example ‘I did something bad’
  • Shame is highly correlated with addiction, depression, violence, aggression, bullying, suicide, eating disorders and Guilt is inversely correlated with those things
  • Empathy is the antidote to shame
