Terry Crews on Success, Accountability, and Toxic Masculinity
YOU ARE WORTHY OF LOVE.
So many of us hide who we truly are.
We bury our shame thinking that if anyone knew we would no longer be accepted.
But living this way keeps us from connecting with others.
It keeps us from truly experiencing life.
I kept my history of abuse hidden for a long time. It wasn’t until I told my story that I could become the person I am today.
You have to forgive yourself.
On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about shame with a person of great courage and integrity: Terry Crews.
Terry Crews is an actor, activist, artist, and former NFL football player. He plays “Terry” on Brooklyn 99 and is now a host on America’s Got Talent. Terry was included among the group of people named as Time Magazine's Person of the Year in 2017 for going public with stories of sexual assault.
