We live in a world constantly listening to the lies our fears and shame tell. They counteract gratitude, acceptance, and compassion—the good parts of us. They keep telling us, “I am not worthy,” even when you are worthy. You’re worthy of self-discovery, personal growth, and love. Brené Brown’s New York Times bestseller, The Gifts of Imperfection, has sold more than 2 million copies in more than 30 languages and was recently named by Forbes as one of the “Five Books That Will Actually Change Your Outlook On Life.” And it shares the mission of helping us find courage in overcoming paralyzing fear and self-consciousness, cultivating our connection to the world.
We are beginning to have a need to nurture our self-worth. This includes self-acceptance and self-love. In a world full of criticism and fear, we can dig deeper and find the truth and gratitude hidden in our lives. We can now pave a new path forward without holding onto self-defeating thoughts or pain. We can now begin to embrace imperfection.
