Quotes from “Braving the Wilderness” by Brene Brown (And My Review)
In Braving the Wilderness, which is all about belonging, she makes the case for changing our collective ways. Here are 10 thought-provoking quotes I pulled from the book which is available from Amazon here , or by order at Mill Street Books here :. Over and over, participants talked about their concern that the only thing that binds us together now is shared fear and disdain, not common humanity, shared trust, respect, or love. They reported feeling more afraid to disagree or debate with friends, colleagues, and family because of the lack of civility and tolerance. This is true in corporations, nonprofits, universities, governments, faith communities, schools, families, and sports programs. And the restitution and resolution of coverups almost always happens in the wilderness — when one person steps outside their bunker and speaks their truth. There is no true belonging, only an unspoken treaty to hate the same people.
This is what happened. And I will choose how the story ends. For that reason, regret can be the birthplace of empathy. There is no right way or wrong way to do it. A critical mass of brave leaders is the foundation of an intentionally courageous culture.
Her ideas and concepts have been helpful in my presentations, my coaching with clients, and in my own life in relationship with others and myself. On Sunday she spoke about how as individuals and communities today we are sorted into communities with others who are like us , lonely, and afraid of those who are not like us. Spirituality is recognizing and celebrating that we are all inextricably connected to each other by a power greater than all of us, and that our connection to that power and one another is grounded in love and compassion. True belonging is the spiritual practice of believing in and belonging to yourself so deeply that you can share your most authentic self with the world and find sacredness in both being a part of something and standing alone in the wilderness. It requires you to be who you are. I imagine one of the reasons people cling to their hates so stubbornly is because they sense, once hate is gone, they will be forced to deal with pain. She shared this quote to talk about how tempting it can be to distance and dehumanize others who are different from us.
