PART 3/3 PRACTICING CRITICAL AWARENESS

PART 3/3 PRACTICING CRITICAL AWARENESS

-

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’.”

-

This excerpt is about: demystifying credentials.

-

*”The social community pressure to appear learnt has become more important than actually learning. When we spend our time and energy guiding and protecting our image of knowing, it’s highly unlikely that we will risk admitting we don’t understand or asking questions. Both of which are essential to real knowledge ability.”

-

*”While the four shame resilience issues don’t happen in a particular order, I have found that understanding our triggers and having some level of critical awareness about our issues make reaching out to others less scary. And this is important because reaching out is the single most powerful act of resilience.”

-

*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.
