Brene Brown: Listening to Shame: TED Talk Every person who gives a Ted Talk has failed. Shame is the voice that tells us no, the little voice that tells us that we’re not good enough and asks us “who do you think you are?" which prevents us from moving forward. Ability to hold what we’ve done by who we want to be, is wholesome. Brene Brown quotes Theodore Roosevelt who said, It is not the critic who counts, it’s not the man who sits and points out how the doer of deeds could have done things better and how he falls and stumbles, the credit goes to the man in the arena whose face is marred with dust and blood and sweat but when he’s in the arena at best he wins, at worst he loses but when he falls when he loses he does so daring greatly. Women need to support men by being present in their vulnerabilities as shame for men is generally related to not being perceived as being weak. Men can support women by hearing when women cannot do everything and are asking for help. Shame for women is when women are perceived as breaking a sweat. Find our way back to each other through vulnerability.
