Why does Brené Brown always wear blue jeans or a denim jacket? Pockets, she says. Brené fills these pockets with permission slips she's written to herself, which say things like, "You have permission to be completely uncool." Watch as she explains how our culture of disengagement, cynicism and emphasis on "cool" act as armor when in a vulnerable state.
