The power of vulnerability:


A nice talk of Brene Brown
Quote’s I liked:

  • These people had the courage to be imperfect
  • They had the compassion to be kind to themselves first (and then to others)
  • We can’t practice compassion with others, if we can’t treat ourselves kindly
  • They had connection because of authenticity. they were willing to let go of who they should be, in order to be who they were.
  • they fully embraced vulnerability.
  • that what makes them vulnerable made them beautifull
  • The willingness to :
    • say I love you first
    • do something where  there are no guarantees
    • the willingness to invest in a relationship that will or will not work out
  • the way to live is with vulnerability and to stop controlling and predicting
  • I lost, .. the fight but probably, won my life back…
  • when we numb, we numb everything
  • how blame is described in the research: a way to discharge and discomfort
  • our job as a parent is: you are imperfect and you are wired for struggle but you are wurthy of love and belonging
  • we prented that what we do does not have a huge impact on other people.
