I Thought It Was Just Me

by Brené Brown


Shame is a common yet terribly damaging emotion. Chances are, the less we openly talk about it, the more we feel it. Whether we've experienced shame after getting rejected, getting fired, or lashing out on someone who didn't deserve it, this feeling is at the core of the human experience.

In this book, celebrity psychologist Brené Brown helps us further understand the complexities of shame and unravels insightful ways to free ourselves from it.
