Here I am reading an excerpt from Brene Brown’s book titled: “I thought it was just me (but it isn’t). Making the journey from ‘what will people think?’ to ‘I am enough’.”


Expanding on the concepts that help us move toward resilience & building critical awareness: contextualising (I see the big picture), normalising (I’m not the only one) & dymestifying (I’ll share what I know with others)... VS... individualising (I am the only one), pathologizing (something is wrong with me) & reinforcing (I should be ashamed).


*“Identifying the contexts in which we feel shame helps us build resilience”.


If you haven’t watched the previous video please watch first -> it is the most recent IGTV before this one in my feed. Watch & come back.


“If we understand how larger systems are contributing to our shame, and we choose only to change ourselves, we become as negligent as the person who says “I’m not changing myself, because the system is bad”. Context is not the enemy of personal responsibility. Individualism is the enemy of responsibility.”


Keep an eye out for the last video in this series over the next few days.


*Reference: Brown, B. (2008). I thought it was just me (but it isn't): Telling the truth about perfectionism, inadequacy, and power. New York: Gotham Books.
