Today I'm discussing the book Rising Strong by Brené Brown with my therapist Candy Smith.
Candy was my guest earlier this season when we talked about shame and vulnerability. Candy has been a licensed therapist for several decades. She specializes in working with adults, and children with trauma, that's how I met her. And every time we talk, I learn so much about the world, about people, and about myself.
In Rising Strong, Brené shares a simple truth. If we apply her previous lessons and are brave enough, often enough, we will fall. Rising Strong is a book about what it takes to get back up and how owning our stories of struggle gives us the power to write a daring new ending.
Candy and I are going to discuss:
- Why you should encourage yourself to make 3 mistakes a day
- How to properly mourn a failure
- Why our expectations (even if we aren't aware of them) are a pathway to disaster
- How to build your shame resilience
