Brené Brown Quote For Today


“We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves to be deeply seen and known, and when we honor the spiritual connection that grows from that offering with trust, respect, kindness and affection.

Love is not something we give or get; it is something that we nurture and grow, a connection that can only be cultivated between two people when it exists within each one of them – we can only love others as much as we love ourselves.

Shame, blame, disrespect, betrayal, and the withholding of affection damage the roots from which love grows. Love can only survive these injuries if they are acknowledged, healed and rare.”

― Brené Brown, The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are

I haven’t read the book yet, but the quote really felt important for me to share with you today.  I would love to hear if you have read the book and what you thought of it!

Keep shining your heartlights!  It seems we all need a bit more sparkle in our lives these days.

Shine On!

  1. Hi Yvonne, I did read the book by Brene Brown and liked it a lot. It’s been a few years since I read it and would love to read it again. I remember after finishing it, I said it was one I would definitely go back to because it was full of great information. I had never heard of a shame researcher until I read that book. It’s fascinating.

    • I definitely have to read it Gail. Thanks for your input! I have heard it was a good book. I just really liked the quote and thought it was a good one to share. Thanks for stopping by! Have a lovely day!

  2. Good one, Yvonne. I have listened to Brene’ Brown’s Ted talks. Love is what we ARE. It’s more than a feeling. I’ve seen her on lots of talk shows to explain her philosophy.
