I've been binge watching Brene brown all morning since finding this. I love her! I wonder though what she would say to holding people accountable? What do others think when someone calls you a nasty name yes you feel pain and discomfort which she defines as blame and you want to blame them and sure at the end of the day you can find empathy for the name caller/abuser and not put the blame on them and not take the pain but what do you do to hold someone accountable without blaming them and not taking on their pain? Any thoughts anyone? or does Brene have her own thoughts on this somewhere?

Interesting thought, Star0009. Also, Brene Brown is a very positive inspiration. I like the topic that you’ve stated. Accountability. This has been a tough one to navigate, but a strong boat makes it through rough waters.

I’m learning that there are levels to this. Accountability. I believe that you should hold your perpetrators responsible, in your mind, for what they’ve done to you for as long as you need to. This is part of the healing process. It is something that should be eventually let go of, but don’t let a video lead you astray from real life experiences.
