the power of vulnerability

There is such power in vulnerability and yet, we tend to shy away from it. Why? Because well, it's vulnerability, and it can feel uncomfortable. Putting your heart out there with no guarantee of what the outcome will be isn't something that people are jumping up and down to do. Brene Brown points out, however, that vulnerability is necessary. I do believe her talk on the power of vulnerability is probably one of the best TED talks I've ever listened to. Please have a look and come back here with some of your thoughts. I would encourage you to take notes while she's talking. I would love to hear what you think and start a discussion on living a wholehearted life driven by the courage to be vulnerable.

I cried during this talk. I've struggled with being vulnerable. I was taught to never let anyone see your weaknesses, never be open. Thanks for sharing. I'm going to watch it again.

I'm listening to her book, Daring Greatly, right now on Audible. LOVE Brene Brown's work!

I'll have to watch again and take notes like you said, because there were so many good points. I especially thought the part about debt, addictions etc. was interesting and how you can't just numb the bad you become numb to it all.
