Should We Ever Share Our Shame Stories? – Dr. Brene Brown

“Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage.
Truth and courage aren’t always comfortable, but they’re never weakness.”  ~ Dr. Brene Brown

Check out Dr. Brene Brown discussing her new book and the type of people who do not deserve to hear your shame story. Dr. Brene Brown is a favorite at Biltmore Psychology and Counseling (BPC) for her amazing work in helping people to accept their imperfection and avoid unhealthy shame. At BPC we could not agree more with Dr. Brown, not everyone has earned the right to hear all parts of your story. We encourage our clients at BPC to only share the most intimate parts of thier stories with people who have earned the right to hear it by showing love, grace, and empathy.
