Video of the Week: "Brené Brown on Blame"

There's nothing like starting summer break with conviction. I've been reading Brené Brown's Rising Strong, and I'm learning so much. I want her to be my best friend. I'll leave you with a small taste of that goodness today: 

Here's what I'm thinking about: 

  • Who's your "Steve" that you're quick to blame?
  • Would you rather it be your fault than no one's fault? Do you think that's related to your need for control? 
  • Brown states, "Blame is simply the discharging of discomfort and blame." Do you agree with this statement? How does that change the way you see yourself as a blamer? How does that change how you look at someone blaming you?
  • How would you say blame is related to accountability and empathy?
