Shame and why we don't talk about it

I Thought It Was Just Me (but it isn't): Telling the Truth About Perfectionism, Inadequacy, and PowerOne of my friends is extremely good at finding new authors for me to read. She turns up with books or sends me a package with a note: "I think you'll enjoy this."

This week she turned up with two books by author Brenee Brown (whose website is utterly gorgeous, but that's by the by) all about shame and wholeheartedness.

She left me this one to read, which I'm very much looking forward to doing, but sadly teased me with the second one and said she hasn't finished it yet. Unfair.

In turn, I'll tease readers with little tastes of what Brenee has to say. And, if you were ever looking for a book to buy me, I'd be happy with any of these... Just saying.
