Embracing The Power of Being Vulnerable
Let me guess, you’re thinking, “I don’t want to read this; vulnerability is the worst”. Am I right?
I agree. However, I also think that embracing the power of vulnerability allows us to build strong connections in all aspects of our lives, personally and professionally.
Author and Researcher, Brene Brown, spent over 6 years studying human connection and found something fascinating. During her research, when she asked people about love, they told her about heartbreak. When she asked them about belonging, they told her about painful experiences of exclusion. When she asked people about connection, they told her about times they felt disconnected. The theme she discovered that unraveled connection, was shame.
