Despite being warned by her therapist and husband not to read online comments, Dr. Brown couldn't help herself. "One day, I was reading the comments and I was devastated," she tells Oprah. "They were comments like, 'Of course she's embracing imperfection. If you were Brené Brown, you'd have to. What choice would you have?' Or, 'Less research, more Botox.' Or 'Maybe you'll be worthy in 20 pounds.'"
Feeling devastated, after her husband left for work and children to school, she needed to be distracted from the pain. "I stay in my pajamas and I sit down on the couch and I watch about 10 hours of Downton Abbey reruns," Dr. Brown admits. "Just numb myself out."
When the marathon ended Dr. Brown wasn't ready to return. "I'm like, 'I don't want to go back to my world where all that hurt is,'" she says.
So, she did an internet search to learn about what was happening in the U.S. during the Downton Abbey era. That's when she came across an inspiring Theodore Roosevelt:
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; . . . who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” --Theodore Roosevelt
Dr. Brown says "It changed my life, that moment, from that millisecond forward, I made a commitment that if you are not in the arena getting your butt kicked on occasion, I'm not interested in your feedback."
