Scared of Feeling Vulnerable? Hate Uncertainty?
Courage-authenticity-shame expert Brene Brown has very insightful ways of thinking about the crucial importance of being able to "fully embrace vulnerability." I've long had her on my blogroll, but was just alerted to this video today: thanks, Margaret, for passing this on. I think it's terrific.
For one thing, I like her definitions: Blame is "a way to discharge pain and discomfort." Shame is "the fear of disconnection."
And vulnerability is the "birthplace" of joy, creativity, love, and a number of other good things. On this video, Brown spends five or so minutes getting acquainted and then really gets into her stuff.
