COURAGE

“The word ‘courage’ comes from the Latin word ‘cor,’ which means heart.  The middle English usage of “courage” included the capacity  “to speak one’s mind by telling all one’s heart.” – Dr. Annie Rogers via Dr. Brene Brown

 

“Shame breeds three things; fear, blame, and disconnection. So how do we practice courage in a culture of fear, in a culture where belonging and fitting in and being accepted are so critically important?  How do I tell you my stories about the imperfect moments in my life, about the time when I was just not the mom that I wanted to be, about the time when I really screwed up at work and I lost the client? Telling our story is the only way that we get out from underneath shame.”  – Dr Brene Brown
