Brené Brown is personally responsible for curing my fear of self-help books, by bringing in an honest and approachable voice, relatable references, and backing it all up by research. Braving the Wilderness is a deeply personal call to action that bridges a gap between a quest for belonging and our deeply divided political climate.

An insightful and highly relevant, Brene Brown talks about the fault lines and fractures in our country's community and how to start bridging and healing those gaps. It is a quick read, and I loved the emphasis on shared experiences that are not at all related to politics or divisive issues.

Stop walking through the world looking for confirmation that you don't belong. You will always find it because you've made that your mission. Stop scouring people's faces for evidence that you're not enough. You will always find it because you've made that your goal. True belonging and self-worth are not goods; we don't negotiate their value with the world. The truth about who we are lives in our hearts. Our call to courage is to protect our wild heart against constant evaluation, especially our own. No one belongs here more than you.
