Thought for today:
‘If we can share our story with someone who responds with empathy and understanding, shame can’t survive.’
— Brené Brown

I haven’t used a Brené Brown quote before, yet I listen to her podcast a lot.
I recommend it if you are so minded, I find her uplifting and inspiring.
There is more to shame than this, so I also recommend a book called Unshame by Carolyn Spring.
It is her own story of a journey through several years of counselling.
And learning to come to terms with her own shame having been abused as a child.
It also shows us where counselling can be ineffective, and as such is a valuable lesson.
