BridgePoint Book Club: The Gifts of Imperfection by Brené Brown

About this event

Perfectionism can cause a person to become obsessed with their weight, diet, food, body image, exercise or portraying the “perfect” image to the world. Is this often your inner voice?

• What will people think if I’m not perfect and don’t succeed? • When will I stop feeling the need to prove myself to others? • Do I really want to be surviving but not thriving in my life?

While change is a vulnerable experience (risky, uncertain and exposes us emotionally), the question we must ultimately answer is this: What’s the greater risk? Letting go of what people think or letting go of who you are? The Gifts of Imperfection explores The Ten Guideposts for Wholehearted Living that help you move from feeling fearful, judgmental and alone, to cultivating the gifts of courage, compassion, and connection. This work is about learning to love our imperfections, reconnecting to our worthiness, and becoming firmly grounded in a deep sense of love and belonging.

Cultivating: 1. Authenticity ~ Letting go of what people think 2. Self-compassion ~ Letting go of perfectionism3. A resilient spirit ~ Letting go of numbing & powerlessness 4. Gratitude & joy ~ Letting go of scarcity & fear of the dark 5. Intuition & trusting faith ~ Letting go of need for certainty 6. Creativity ~ Letting go of comparison 7. Play & rest ~ Letting go of exhaustion as a status symbol & productivity as self-worth 8. Calm & stillness ~ Letting go of anxiety as a lifestyle 9.
