6 Types of People Who Do Not Deserve to Hear Your Shame Story

The 6 People Who Do Not Deserve Your Shame Story Post Image

Are you opening up and sharing your "shame stories" with with the wrong types of people, or friends, in your life?

Think before you speak, and make sure that the next person you share your "shame story" with truly has your best interest at heart.  In the YouTube video below, Oprah Winfery interviews Dr. Brené Brown and discusses how there are six types of people with whom you shouldn't share your "shame" story with (from "one-upper" friend to the women at the mall that you try to prove yourself to and more).  She talks about the dangers of sharing your most vulnerable self with the wrong people.  This is very interesting , and is great advice to keep in mind.  I'll definitely be including this in the "part 2" of my post, Top 35 Life Lessons, Wisdom, and Advice for Daughters and for Yourself.  

I think this is good advice, and I highly recommend watching the video.

Here is the YouTube clip of Dr. Brené Brown and Oprah discussing the six types of people that you shouldn't share your shame story with:

Dr. Brené Brown is the author of the following books:

The Gifts of Imperfection         Daring Greatly Book          I Thought It Was Just Me But It Isn't Book
