Brene Brown has been my mentor via her book and her Ted talk for a while now. RSA made one of her many wonderful excerpts into this animation. So funny, beautiful and made me realized how easily and repeatedly I confused empathy and sympathy.
Teacher by day poet/writer by night. Words have been my first love and will be my last. As a child I locked myself into the toilet devouring books which transported me to distant lands.
Poetry shared penned from 2009-2010 in a titanic struggle to stay sane at Heartbreak Hotel. Please check it out on firstname.lastname@example.org.
