Brené Brown On Shame: 'It Cannot Survive Empathy'

Brené Brown On Shame: 'It Cannot Survive Empathy'

Commented Aug 31, 2013 at 21:32:58 in OWN

“redrdstr, I agree with you, and found that yours is the ONLY post to express this "old school", common-sense frame of mind. Everyone else is just naval-gazing or just feels guilty. Step back, people, and take a look at the BIG picture of today's society. Too much permission and not enough self-discipline. Too much instant gratification and not enough forethought to define and do what is right for and within the group in the future. No moral compass, and much too much whining. Of course we can feel guilty but feel no shame, That is an entirely different discussion altogether! :D”

“Only TWO comments? - REALLY?!!! yet any other HuffPost story whether newsworthy or not gets scads of comments. C'mon, people, WAKE UP! this topic affects half of the world's population, any no one has anything meaningful to say about it. Yes, Egypt is a "friend" to US but they should also be strongly advised on their human rights policies - set the bar high & we will ALL benefit!”

“Where was her male companion? She could've used his help docking. since there was no one else there but her, she had no choice but to struggle to do it alone. who hasn't been out drinking on a boat? usually someone stays sober enough to drive”

travler809 on Jun 10, 2013 at 12:21:43

“Well, as the article said, SHE said there was a male companion, but no male companion was found. What, is he just swimming around and letting her drive? And for what it's worth, I've been on many boats - didn't drink. So your whole post is wrong, except wondering where her "male companion" was!”

“Peplum are a style from the 1940's when dresses were more tailored. It is a modified flounce at the waist from a fitted top. It softens the severity of the tailored style. It is particularly flattering on women with thin waists; bulks them out a bit. KS would look good in a peplum, she just doesn't get it.”

“As the first person to pursue a college degree in my family at a time when solid guidance for my field was non-existent, I knew what I wanted in class content but was also unable to afford the school I wanted to attend. The desire was there, but the tools to get there were not. I don't need a liberal arts education to tell me I'm middle class, just the life that I still desire to build. However, I do understand the point you are trying to make regarding liberal arts and culture (the expansion of the mind).”

“No liberal arts! That's la-la-land! I have an A.S. to prove it! I wanted more "meat & potatoes" classes, something practical to learn to better prepare me for the workworld and its expectations. I needed skills not "liberal arts"!”

Skyblacker on Apr 10, 2013 at 21:55:04

“Liberal arts gives you the cultural markers required to identify yourself as middle-class. Whether it gives you the skills to earn a middle-class income is doubtful. Why is there such a disconnect between school and what comes after it?”

“You are incorrect. Please read Wired magazine's Dec. 2012 issue [article 9,201,204 date: Dec. 4, 2012] regarding the patent problem. It explains web-based "systems" patents where the patent is on a software command and not a physical product. Mitchell Medina wanted to patent scanning, an idea he came up with in the 80's. Emtage wrote the code for the search engine - hence "process"-software commands. same thing. Mildmannered is correct-this deserves a patent.”

“Jordan Sheard's act wasn't a "prank" - he set a young disabled gay man on fire - that's murder and the lawyers should press for 40 to life to give Sheard time to consider what he has done to another human being and his surviving family. Society needs to be protected from one who is so heedless of life and the consequences of his actions. Steven Simpson will never get the chance to live his life and contribute to society. Jordan Sheard's value system and thought process is heinous - Hate is not the answer, it only reflects his fear.”

“That's because its written for a large group of people who are all born under 12 sunsigns, with the horoscope defaulting to 12 noon. Your personal horoscope varies based on your birth time because the rising sign determines which houses each planet falls in [House 1-12]. Each "house" rules a part of life, from birth until death. The positions of the current planets will aspect the natal positions thus affecting positively or negatively parts of your life. Planetary aspects suggest not predict! if you follow astrology...”

“I read that he did; just because they are served doesn't mean that they are safe - that is the point I am making.”

“If you go into a club that has a drinks license and has all the health and safety certificates etc you cannot be more certain that what you drink should be safe, if you don't accept that you would never drink in a club/pub/bar you would never eat in a cafe or dine in a restaurant for fear of what you are eating or drinking is unsafe. So actually you can say you are never ever, ever certain that what you eat/drink is safe”

“What blew me away was the fact that dishes were piling up, getting in the way of the next meal's prep and her children blew this off. If its on your chore list, then you own it. I can see special circumstances during a weekend day leading to slacking off, but when Monday and Tuesday comes and the stuff is still there - wow! what a disconnect for these kids. COMMON SENSE says you make the stuff go away so you can get on with your life! That and a the realization that all who live in the household contribute to it in some way. Parenting needs to bring back the chores and make them happen. Find out what the child sees as a reward and leverage it. Be one step or more ahead of them so they learn how to be decent living people. I truly believe it is a mindset that the children must have - to be self-motivated for all of the right reasons. Children must have a value system, a moral compass. Thoughts lead to actions, actions lead to habits. All is achieved by self-discipline. Parents MUST instill this.”

“Glad this is filed under Weird News because it is stupid. A classic case of 1) a stupid bar serving up a gimmick because they are told it is "safe". Liquid nitrogen isn't and why would you want to? It is way too cold. 2) stupid >>> (young) girl and/or other patron who dare to imbibe this when you know its too cold anyway. Like that movie where the kid takes a dare to lick a flagpole in a snowstorm and he gets stuck and laughed at. Now this poor girl will have to remember her mistake every morning when she wakes up for the rest of her life! Sad AND preventable! shame on the bar and very sad for her!”

“I hear you, jer-z-girl. I can't remember an election year where the two party ideologies are both so polarized and the rhetoric from both parties so extreme to the left or right. Its almost like you don't want to vote for either, because your views aren't adequately expressed in either party. I myself am a "common-sense" centrist. Of course we are obligated to vote, as so many people in this world live in countries that don't allow their voices to be heard.”
