True Strength

Vulnerability is hard.  Being vulnerable is scary.  Few of us are willing to truly expose our thoughts and feelings to others.  However, according to Dr. Brene’ Brown, who has done extensive research on the subject, being vulnerable is exactly what we need to do to be healthy.  She says, “Vulnerability is the core, the heart, the center of the meaningful human experience.”

You see friends, we can’t experience life without feeling life, and we can’t feel life without being vulnerable.  Vulnerability – the art of being uncalculating, the willingness to look foolish – is the staple of creativity and the substance of authentic leadership.

Vulnerability is also the very essence of romance; it’s the glue that holds healthy relationships together.  Without vulnerability, there is no genuine community.  To truly be happy we must accept the truth that vulnerability is not weakness, it is the strength.  To be our authentic self may be the boldest and courageous thing we do.  I promise you it will also be the most rewarding.

Take Away: It’s brave to be real.
