The Gifts of Imperfection - Which Brene Brown book to read first? Showing 1-24 of 24
Must-Read Books by Brené Brown
I live in my head and pride myself on being a logical, thought-based person. I found myself thinking about why I denied those feelings for many years, and then thinking about those feelings and why I was having them more than simply feeling them. This book digs into the standards we all hold ourselves too as they relate to perfectionism and the fears we all carry about never being good enough. These standards for perfection lead us to overlooking the need to be vulnerable and the need to explore the shame that exists in our fears of being inadequate. Brown interviewed hundreds of people, talking about where they see themselves setting up these standards and why it is they blame themselves for various situations in their lives. She then shares those stories and explains how they expose our inabilities to process shame for what it is and our fears of being vulnerable and really connecting with other people.

I frequently have about books at going at once. I write in them and bend the corners - marking pages to come back to when I need guidance, inspiration or insight. They're a major source of conversation in my life, as I'm always curious to hear what other people are reading and love recommending books that I've fallen head over heels for. So here we are. The day has finally come when I put together a list of books that have changed my life in some way and I think will do the same for you. Each book on this list is a personal favorite of mine.
