What story do you live in?

Brene Brown says everybody has shame, but nobody wants to talk about it. But not talking about it lets us overestimate its power.

I am happy to listen to my shame, but I don’t accept its theories about who I am. I won’t live in the house shame built for me.

I have a different story. It says I’m a spark of the divine fire, a creator, a decider. I belong here, and my gifts are unique, and we’re all in this together.

How about you? What’s your story?
