    Ah, shame. My nemesis.

    Shanny, shan. No wonder we’re soul sisters.

    I get you on the deepest level.

    God, that’s good stuff.

    (hug her for me, too)

    • Shannon

      We are soul sisters. I love having you in my life.

      I will hug her for you. xo

    I love this, Shannon. I had not heard of Brené Brown before, but I have made mental note to watch her TED Talk later, because I whole-heartedly agree that empathy is paramount to healing. Because I am currently studying to be a super kick-ass counsellor, I’ve had to spend a lot of time lately reflecting on what ‘ingredients’ I plan on using in my therapeutic cocktail, and empathy and empowerment are at the top of my list. It’s really hard to move forward in your life if you feel like shit about yourself and either feel like you don’t have what it takes to change, or aren’t worth the effort (which unfortunately, I think is the case for many people). I think it’s great that you consciously practice empathy with your loved ones. It’s so important!

    In any case, I wanted to say that although you are far away, having people like you to learn from nourishes my soul. xo

    • Shannon

      You most certainly are going to make a kick-ass counsellor, Nicky. You are already are. You’ve done wonders for my heart.

      Brené is gunna change yer life! xo

    How much are plane tickets? I need to stay up all night talking to you! None of this pesky sleeping all night in a room together business. I must visit.

    • Shannon

      Oh, friend! Please do jump on a plane. I believe it’s yo turn!

      All the hugs, Tara. You can call me, too! Let’s do a skype date!

    You’re amazing, Shan. I know I say this again and again, but that’s mostly because there aren’t words that appropriately sum up your awesomeness. I loved Brené’s talk from the first time I watched it, but you are the only person I’ve ever encountered that fully subscribes to what she said. It’s powerful stuff, and I’m so, so glad we managed to connect. You’ve made me take a hard look at the empathy I have for myself, and I can’t thank you enough for it <3

  • Peach

    Brene is amazing. Her talk is amazing. Daring Greatly is amazing.

    But more, you are amazing. Proud of you. xox

  • Natasha

    I read this again and agree with everything Brené said except one little thing: I don’t think it’s necessary to need other people to display empathy to the things that cause us shame. I think we can be that for ourselves. It’s been so long since I read this that I forgot where it was going and when I read her saying that empathy was the antidote to shame I was in complete agreement but was expecting her to say that we need to have empathy for ourselves. Then I was surprised when she gave that power to other people! What if you do take the risk and then someone is judgey and mean, just as feared? Horrifying. But if we can not need them and be our own fonts of empathy, we can be better off. I think I’m empathetic with others BECAUSE I’m usually so empathetic with myself. I know myself well and I know that I almost always mean well, so I can forgive my own missteps.

    • Shannon

      I like this. Yes. Are you going to tell Brene, or should I?


  • Maris Tyler

    What a great piece, Shannon. I loved reading this. Its like someone else is putting what Ive been feeling for a long time into words. Peace, Love, Empathy xx
