being an upstander
Updated: Sep 4, 2019
I was really moved by Monica Lewinsky’s TED talk, “ The Price of Shame”. Following on from my last post, about Daring Greatly - my goodness is this an example of just that. After 10 years of keeping herself in a safer place out of the arena, she has found her brilliant voice and a cause to communicate passionately about.
As any parent navigating the unchartered digital world with their children Monica is voicing what many of us are experiencing. I love her phrase of “being an upstander not a bystander” and in honour of that Monica; I am being an upstander by sharing your message. I heartily congratulate you on your courage and compassion.
