I Thought It Was Just Me

Brené Brown

Overview

Shame is one of our private emotions. Chances are, the less we openly talk about it, the more we feel it. Whether it's getting rejected, getting fired, or lashing out on someone we shouldn't, we've all felt shame at some point, and psychologist Brené Brown's I Thought It Was Just Me (but it isn't) helps us further understand this painful, powerful emotion.

Here, Brown explores the way shame can impact our daily lives, and provides effective strategies to help us better combat it.
