Dr. Brenè Brown has been researching and gathering data for more than 10 years and concludes that when we live someone else's story and therefore crowd out our own special creativity, the pain and grief of that loss does not go away. It turns to fear, anger, and shame. If we go on living in a way that is not authentic we may try to mask the pain with perfection, aggression, or addiction. The better answer is to discover and follow a path that allows us to make our own, individual contributions to the world; to be vulnerable to our imperfections; to trust that we are enough. Humorous, authentic, and alive, Dr. Brown lives what she teaches.
