Quote of the Day

Shame derives its power from being unspeakable.  That's why it loves perfectionists -- it's so easy to keep us quiet.  If we cultivate enough awareness about shame to name it and speak to it, we've basically cut it off at the knees.  Shame hates having words wrapped around it.  If we speak shame, it begins to wither.   

-- Brene Brown, Daring Greatly, p. 67
