Struggled to finish the book. Her story is difficult to relate to for me. At times felt too fairytale-ish. I enjoy the way she writes and tells her story but wasnt a book for me. As she says many editors told her, her book is "too sweet" and really doesnt relate to my life.

"True belonging doesn't require us to change who we are. It requires us to be who we are." Social scientist Brené Brown, PhD, LMSW, has sparked a global conversation about the experiences that bring meaning to our lives - experiences of courage, vulnerability, love, belonging, shame, and empathy. In Braving the Wilderness, Brown redefines what it means to truly belong in an age of increased polarization.

I found this book at the same time that I was unknowingly stepping into the wilderness, working to creat a safe environment for my students, colleagues and myself. My values led me down a path of resistence against the "statuse quo", a "me vs them" situation. Brene helped me understand the wilderness, gave me the courage and tools to help me brave it. I look forward to reading her previous books.
