《Daring Greatly》─ Brené Brown
Vulnerability means the willingness to show up and let ourselves be seen as our authentic, imperfect selves.
Some examples of vulnerability:
- Getting fired
- Starting a business
- Saying I love you first
- The list goes on.
The single line that connects those examples is fueled by the fear of being unworthy.
People are afraid of being ordinary. The cultural message in the present world is that we are not good enough. Hustle culture, productivity, perfectionism, the fear of shame has permeated every corner of our culture.
In spite of all this, this book challenges us to encourage vulnerability in our daily lives. Because it is when we take off the vulnerability armory, we’re able to live wholeheartedly and prevent cruelty, criticism, and cynicism in all of us.
This hits home for anyone striving in facing this scarcity culture we have in this world.
Until next time ~
