Shame: The Swampland of the Soul. Brene Brown Ted Talk

If you put shame in a petri dish it needs 3 things to grow exponentially – secrecy, silence, and judgement. If you put the same amount of shame into a petri dish and douse it with empathy, it can’t survive.           Brene Brown

In Brene Brown’s words, Shame is the Swampland of the Soul. It sucks you in, holds you back, and keeps you from moving forward. For many, the first reaction to their Herpes Diagnosis is Shame. In an instant they see themselves as dirty, unlovable, and disgusting. It’s an unfortunate side effect of the virus that can create more pain and anguish than the actual symptoms of the virus itself. This Ted Talk by Brene Brown is a powerful conversation about what shame is, how it affects us, and what we can do to let it go.
