Elt performative for the sake of the narrative Not that the pastor is performative Just ow er story is being used Isotopic Carbon here At one point those Braving the Wilderness are likened to being at a outdoor dance party like I want to go to There the place where people are free dancing and Brave but without also giving time to those that are out there dancing because For Real theyave Zero choice and The Robotics Primer (Intelligent Robotics Autonomous Agents) (Intelligent Robotics Autonomous Agents) (Intelligent Robotics Autonomous Agents Series) had not been given the option to go Inside So some are out in the Wilderness making the best of what that means and yes sometimes that means dancing Some might be out in the wilderness and are sad or lonely or are just doing their laundry but they re still in the Wilderness because they are living their Non Majority lives It felt like for Majority people like say straight people white people abled people they can Choose the Wilderness and thenave the cool option of touristing to the Wilderness Dance Party but then still not really fathom the chasm the rests between those that Choose to go back Inside like when it gets cold or really really Step Out of Your Story hard and those that stillave to be outside no matter whatB The second point that really frustrated me was the call for civility in these discussions as we Brave the Wilderness This part felt really really White Lady Liberal Feminism Like If only you told me that criticism about my behavior in a nicer tone or if you did it in a compliment sandwich I would likely listen to you tell me about that racist thing I just did I think calling for people to be civil is fine Let s be nice to each other sure BUT if it s being pushed and also it s not discussed The Eyes of the Dead how calls for civility are often weaponized by white people especially White Women as a way to control the conversation and STILL end up oppressing others I feel like white people especially and I m a white woman need to walk into those Let s be civil conversations with a full understanding ofow we abuse those specific calls to action for our own favor to protect us make us less uncomfortable and put the burden on others to Rules for a Lady have to adjust to what we think is Real Civil Discourse I found Brown s call for civility without cautioning aboutow that argument often abuses people of color to be troublingSo for me as a ueer disabled person I found this book is probably nicer and inspiring if you re coming from the Majority space Where it can feel novelscary to stand up for someone who is different than you If you re coming from a not majority space though it may not feel as connected as you may wish it to beMy last point that frustrated me is that I wish Brown showed data Often she writes The data showed us that people feel like X but never lists concrete data it s very general about big points and it normally made me wish for something slightly Calebs Tempting Mate (Saber Chronicles heavier on the science part of social science I listened to the audio version and thought Brown did a fine job on the narration I likeer voice so it was nice to listen to Library overdrive Audiobook read by Breen Brown Note I enjoyed this so much that I m considering buying the AudiobookThere may be thousands of people around the world who are ABC huge fansand even though Iad read one of Odd Man In her books wasn t all that impressed and later listened to one ofer Audiobook s I was much impressed I still didn t consider myself a fan of Palace Intrigue (A Medieval Tale her work and uite frankly I really didn t really get whater deal was in the world In fact I didn t even know what she looked like until I read this book which lead me to research Parking Lot Rules 75 Other Ideas for Raising Amazing Children her a little A semi famous very successful social scientist callederself a Research Storyteller It s a perfect way to describe Brene Brown By the way I love Carlyle Marney her first name BreneI admit after listening to this Audiobook I m in I m a fan of the work she s doing The way she talked about belonging as opposed to being excludedad me looking at this topic from an angle I Shameful hadn t thought about One of the early stories she shared about fromer childhood ad me wondering if I ad ever abandoned my children in spirit from a look of disappointment from my silence from not comforting them when they needed me It Sacred Landscapes hurt to think that maybe at times I did and that even though 90% of the time I might notave or even 99% of the time I didn tone time 1% could be enough to shift a child s self worth Brene s story was so powerful I replayed the audiobook from the beginning to Angel Without Mercy (Agnes Carmichael, have Paulear this story Paul. Esearch storytelling and Gold Rush honesty Brown will again change the cultural conversation while mapping a clear path to true belongingBrown argues that we're experiencing a spiritual crisis of disconnection and introduces four practices of true belonging that challenge everything we believe about ourselves and each other She writes True belonging reuires us to believe in and belong to ourselves so fully that we can find sacredness both in being a part of something and in standing alone when necessary But in a culture that's rife with perfectionism and pleasing and with the erosion of civility it's easy to stay uietide in our ideological bunkers or fit in rather than show up as our true
