Great TED talk on vulnerability and empathy by Brene Brown, a psychologist that studies human connections.
To connect on a deep and meaningful level with our self and others we need to fully embrace vulnerability. We need to be courageous, without insecurity, genuine, without fear.
Only by sharing our true selves can we foster deep understanding of each other.
I cannot emphasise enough how important this is. It is a powerful concept.
“When we numb [hard feelings], we numb joy, we numb gratitude, we numb happiness.”
“Vulnerability is our most accurate measurement of courage.”
“People that have a strong sense of love and belonging believe they are worthy of love and belonging”
