    Inhaltsangabe

    The quest for perfection is exhausting and unrelenting. We spend too much precious time and energy managing perception and creating carefully edited versions of ourselves to show to the world. As hard as we try, we can't seem to turn off the tapes that fill our heads with messages like, Never good enough! and What will people think? 

    Why? What fuels this unattainable need to look like we always have it all together? At first glance, we might think its because we admire perfection, but that's not the case. We are actually the most attracted to people we consider to be authentic and down-to-earth. We love people who are real; we're drawn to those who both embrace their imperfections and radiate self-acceptance. 

    There is a constant barrage of social expectations that teach us that being imperfect is synonymous with being inadequate. Everywhere we turn, there are messages that tell us who, what, and how were supposed to be. So, we learn to hide our struggles and protect ourselves from shame, judgment, criticism, and blame by seeking safety in pretending and perfection. 

    Based on seven years of ground-breaking research and hundreds of interviews, I Thought It Was Just Me shines a long-overdue light on an important truth: Our imperfections are what connect us to each other and to our humanity. Our vulnerabilities are not weaknesses; they are powerful reminders to keep our hearts and minds open to the reality that we're all in this together. 

    As Dr. Brown writes, "We need our lives back. It's time to reclaim the gifts of imperfection - the courage to be real, the compassion we need to love ourselves and others, and the connection that gives true purpose and meaning to life. These are the gifts that bring love, laughter, gratitude, empathy and joy into our lives."

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Brené Brown’s ability to explore shame and resilience with humor, vulnerability and honesty is both uplifting and liberating. If we want to change our lives, our relationships or even the world, we must start by understanding and overcoming the shame that keeps us silent. This important and hopeful book offers a bold new perspective on the power of telling our stories." (Professor Jody Williams, 1997 Nobel Peace Prize Recipient; Campaign Ambassador, International Campaign to Ban Landmines)
    "Grounded in exceptional scholarship and filled with inspiring stories, this is one of those rare books that has the potential to turn lives around." (Harriet Lerner, Ph.D., author of The Dance of Anger)
    " I Thought It Was Just Me can be a doorway to freedom and self-esteem for many, many readers. (Martha Beck, Ph.D., columnist, O, The Oprah Magazine, and author of Finding Your Own North Star)

    A book to listen two or three times

    Social psychology made simple. We often don't know why do we act, feel or think in a specific way. We often don't realize which hidden emotions, thoughts or experiences are driving us.

    I listened this book two times and things become more and more clear the more often one is listening to it.

    I wasn't aware which huge impact shame has in our society. I used this word rarely.

    The book opened my eyes and it made me aware to take a closer look to my own actions and behaviour.

    Die Sprecherin hat für mich versaut :(

    Wenn man eines der Bücher von Brené Brown gehört hat, mit Brené selbst als Erzählerin, ist dieser Titel einfach nur nervig.

    Dazu kommt noch, dass hier leider wenig Neues drin ist. Langsam komme ich auf die Vermutung - einmal gehört ist fast alles gehört.

    Klar, als Wiederholung ist es Prima. Ich meine für alle, wir können diese Lektion nicht oft genug wiederholen.

    Dennoch, von allen Brene Brown Büchern, die ich bisher gehört habe, war dieses das schlechteste. Es wäre VIEL besser, wenn Brene weiterhin ihre eigenen Geschichten erzählen würde, oder wenn man versuchen würde, die Stimme mit jemandem abzustimmen, der die gleiche lebendige, warme Art zu sprechen hat wie Brene selbst. Dieser Erzähler ist kalt und versucht, klinisch zu sein. Das hat mir nicht gefallen.

    Wenn dies Ihr erstes Hörbuch von Brene Brown ist, sollte Sie das nicht abschrecken, da Sie keinen Bezugspunkt haben. Sie sollten einfach nur zuhören, und zwar sehr genau, was gesagt wird. Es gibt hier einige sehr gute Weisheiten.

    amazing insights

    In my opinion think every person should read this book. It's about compassion and for me it also tells a lot about feminism and gender equality. I think everybody can use some of the indights and advice in this book.
