Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

When we deny our stories, they define us.

When we own our stories, we get to write the ending.
 
Social scientist Brené Brown has ignited a global conversation on courage, vulnerability, shame, and worthiness. Her pioneering work uncovered a profound truth: Vulnerability—the willingness to show up and be seen with no guarantee of outcome—is the only path to more love, belonging, creativity, and joy. But living a brave life is not always easy: We are, inevitably, going to stumble and fall.
 
It is the rise from falling that Brown takes as her subject in Rising Strong. As a grounded theory researcher, Brown has listened as a range of people—from leaders in Fortune 500 companies and the military to artists, couples in long-term relationships, teachers, and parents—shared their stories of being brave, falling, and getting back up. She asked herself, What do these people with strong and loving relationships, leaders nurturing creativity, artists pushing innovation, and clergy walking with people through faith and mystery have in common? The answer was clear: They recognize the power of emotion and they’re not afraid to lean in to discomfort.
 
Walking into our stories of hurt can feel dangerous. But the process of regaining our footing in the midst of struggle is where our courage is tested and our values are forged. Our stories of struggle can be big ones, like the loss of a job or the end of a relationship, or smaller ones, like a conflict with a friend or colleague. Regardless of magnitude or circumstance, the rising strong process is the same: We reckon with our emotions and get curious about what we’re feeling; we rumble with our stories until we get to a place of truth; and we live this process, every day, until it becomes a practice and creates nothing short of a revolution in our lives. Rising strong after a fall is how we cultivate wholeheartedness. It’s the process, Brown writes, that teaches us the most about who we are.

My depression is gone

Ok, I know a lot of these reviews are sketchy and 'which ones can I trust' but you can trust mine. I'm from Minnesota, grew up in Colorado and Brené Brown has literally changed my life.

I have struggled with depression for so many freaking years, and little to my surprise did I come to find out that it wasn't depression at all but a list of other things that I actually had control of but wasn't aware of. Her research provided a way for me to be able to understand myself on a level deeper than anyone or any book I've ever read. I read her books every night like scripture because her words literally feed my soul. Sounds like hippy BS but it isn't. It's real. It's here. And you'll never hear about it because of the psychiatric society. I was depressed and bed ridden for two weeks and finally got myself to jump into her book again and literally overnight I was better. My husband was totally surprised and shocked and confused. We'd never seen an answer so quick like that.

This book was the last missing puzzle piece and everything has finally fit together. Please for the sake of your own mental health, read her books.
