This is a TED talk that should be shared. Yes, it’s old but it’s relevant.
Brené Brown studies human connection – our ability to empathize, belong, love. In a poignant, funny talk at TEDxHouston, she shares a deep insight from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity.
And next month, on 2nd March, Brené Brown will make a very special appearance in Sydney for The School of Life [Sydney edition].
In a rare visit to Australia, Brené Brown will draw on her personal experience and research to present a powerful process to help rise from our falls, overcome our mistakes, and face hurt in a way that brings more wisdom and wholeheartedness into our lives.
“Whether our stories of struggle are as big as the loss of a job or the end of a relationship, or day-to-day conflicts with relatives or friends, the process of rising strong after a fall are the same. As Brené explains, ‘When we deny our stories and disengage from tough emotions, they don’t go away – they own us, then they define us. Our job is not to deny the story, but to defy the ending – to rise strong, reckon with our story and rumble with the truth until we get to a place where we think, yes. This is what happened. This is my truth. And I will choose how this story ends.’ In this event, you’ll discover how to live this process, and create nothing less than a revolution.”
