I could go on and on about this topic since I am reading Daring Greatly by Brene Brown. If you have not read this, stop what you are doing, and order it! This book hits the nail on the head!
Being vulnerable is terrifying. It feels like you are standing in front of your worst enemy butt naked and unable to defend yourself. But is much more to vulnerability than this helpless feeling.
In true vulnerability you find courage, strength, authenticity, compassion, and empowerment. While vulnerability can unearth your worst fears and place you in the center of your shame, it will reward you after. Vulnerability is the barrier between us and our wholehearted selves. Who wouldn’t want to live wholeheartedly and unapologetically? Anyway… go read the book! No matter what you think you know about vulnerability it will rock your world in the best way!
