Who To Tell Your Struggle

Brene Brown has some excellent resources on dealing with shame. She is not approaching this subject as a Christian pastor per se. She is a researcher. But she has some excellent insights that I found personally helpful.

Three of her books, I highly recommend. The Gifts of Imperfection, I Thought It Was Just Me (but it isn’t), Daring Greatly. Below are a couple youtube videos of her talking on these matters. The first video emphasizes why it is vital that we, faithful spouses, tell our story. Telling our story is necessary to escape the shame. Second, the next video explains that not everyone is entitled to hear our story. It is a gift to hear it. This is a great gift especially when we are being very vulnerable about our story.

  1. Thank you for the new resource. It is interesting the phases of books we go through during this very difficult time. I’m now ready to start healing myself and have been looking for appropriate books. I looked at this author wondering if her books were worthwhile. Out of the three you mentioned, is there one you would start with? Are there any other books the blog followers would recommend for the path to healing? I’ve started Henry Cloud’s Changes that Heal. So far, so good.

    1. BHB,

      Of the three, I would start with I Thought It Was Just Me (but it isn’t). They are all very good. Also, I would highly recommend a book called Rejection Exposed by Anthony Hulsebus. It is a book that helped me greatly in my healing. Also, it comes with a workbook that you may find helpful.
