Living Trough Vulnerability

Vulnerability is one of the hardest things that we, as humans beings, will deal with in our lives.

Brené Brown talks about what it takes to have a “sense of love and belonging” and how it connects to vulnerability.

What she discovered is that the people that live in a wholehearted way have the courage to be imperfect, have compassion to themselves before others and have the capability to connect because they are authentic. But most and foremost they embraced vulnerability as a means to fulfilment.

It is probably the hardest lesson that we all have to learn in our lives. That to be happy and to be fulfilled we must all be first and foremost vulnerable. And it is, without a shadow of a doubt an area where I still have allot of work to do.

My most sincere thanks to Erin from Analyfe for sharing this wonderful talk! You can find her post here!

  1. It’s so hard to become vulnerable and open to others and to life, but it sounds like it will be worthwhile in the end. I’m really happy you were able to take something away from the talk. I think people in our position – those struggling to find footing and gain employment – especially need to hear this and understand that it’s not us, we’re not failures.

      That’s exactly right! It’s okay to slow down and breath and be who you are without fearing what others will say!
      I found the part when she says, that when we numb ourselves we do it to every feeling and not only the bad ones, especially true!
      It’s as if without a term of comparison we forget what it’s like to be happy.

  2. I listened …I learned…Thanks!
