This woman just does not stop. Such a refined intellect. Her work on shame and on relationships in general is so important right now—and so inspiring to me personally. Get on board guys: this is the wave of the future. We all need to figure out our own shame cycles and move through them so we can truly connect as human beings. Creating a life that's just for show is over over over. Authenticity with yourself and others is the way to end abuse in your own life, and will prevent you from engaging in abusive behavior, be it overt or covert, in the lives of others. I have a long way to go on this, but trust me: it's time for EVERYONE to get on board. Your can't—and WON'T—change the world or even your own life for the better until you bring psychological health to your interpersonal relationships. And I've never met one human being who I didn't think could benefit from a closer analysis of their own shame and boundaries.
