Yes, @brenebrown We must be mindful in our attempts not to see vulnerability as weakness. The more people I talk to and get to know at a deeper level, the more I realize we are all struggling and hurting in some way. We are afraid of removing our masks and letting people see what we’ve been trying so hard to hide We fear we’re imposters, a fraud, incompetent...not good enough. Oh how I’ve hidden my vulnerabilities for so much of my life. But in the past couple years, I’ve been given courage, a boldness to speak what is true even if it’s hard, reassurance that I’m loved anyway for who I am, not just for being the perfect, impressive version of myself ✨ So instead of hiding, instead of covering up in shame, invite a small and trusted circle of people, or maybe just one for now, into your fears and worries and vulnerabilities. Open up and await the freedom that comes on the other side of having the courage to be vulnerable.
