I've been struggling lately with the idea that I'm not enough. not pretty enough, smart enough, strong enough, sweet enough, assertive enough. etc. I felt conflicted with social media as the root cause of these insecurities but a feeling of missing out if I'm not a member. With a 12 year old son, do I want him on social media only to feel the pressures and feelings of unworthiness as his mom? No, of course not. My sister suggested this book to me, and I am forever grateful to her and to Brene Brown for the insights I gained from this book. I know now I can't control social media but I have control over my reaction and use of it. I can look at social media from a more empathetic stance recognizing that some people are showing their vulnerabilities on social media and mostly, i realized that I can choose how to interpret what I see. That we are a world full of these ideas that can crush ones daringness but I dont need to hide or be silent. I am excited to pass on these insights to my son and forever grateful for these new insights.
