Shame is a hard thing to overcome. One can not even feel vulnerable unless they get past shame. Brene Brown wrote the quote ‘the secret killer of innovation is shame’ in Daring Greatly in regards to people never putting themselves out there for fear of what others think. My heart aches for the people who don’t share their music, art, writings or newest invention because they are worried about criticism. They see their work as a representation of their whole self and if someone doesn’t like something they create, they must not like them. Imagine where the world would be if everyone was afraid of what others thought about what they create. Be brave. Overcome shame.
