Accept Yourself

by David Meyer

Brené Brown showcases her singular gift for merging New Age thought and rigorous research to guide readers to greater self-compassion.

Brené Brown offers a distinctive combination of research-backed insights and pure empathy. Her presentation “The Power of Vulnerability” is the fourth-most viewed TED Talk worldwide. Though often lumped in with lesser self-help intellects, Brown’s intelligence, willingness to face the tough interior questions and refusal to pander place her far above any genre.

My goal for this book is to slow down the falling and rising processes: to bring into our awareness all the choices that unfurl in front of us during those moments of discomfort and hurt, and to explore the consequence of those choices.Brené Brown

Brown, founder and CEO of The Daring Way and a research professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work, has a unique gift for touching something deep within her readers. They respond to, anticipate and support her fundamental theme: being emotionally honest and vulnerable and facing your mistakes and shortcomings bravely and without self-blame will bring wisdom and personal evolution. Practicing this candid openness, she teaches, will enhance your ability to connect to people, to love and to accept love.
