The Power of Vulnerability

I’m not usually big on TED Talks or listening to a speaker for 20 minutes. But a friend shared a video with me that really hits the nail on the head of what vulnerability means. “What made them vulnerable, made them beautiful. It was necessary.” – Brene Brown

As Brene explains in the video, vulnerability is the key to joy and happiness.

Vulnerability: The courage to be imperfect

Courage: telling the story of who you are with your whole heart

Two Ways to be Vulnerable

  • Make connections with others- let go of who you should be and be who you are
    • You must have the willingness to invest in others
  • Love Yourself – how can you show love and sympathy to others if you hate who you are

Warning: this video is kinda long, but well worth your time.
