Tip: Vulnerability Breeds Connection

So we've been hearing
Brené Brown talk about this for years, and I feel that now it's more true than ever before: vulnerability breeds connection.

When we hide what we are feeling, we cut ourselves off, from both ourselves and others.

When we have the courage to be curious, compassionate and honest with ourselves, we can tap into our common humanity and understand that there is nothing wrong with ourselves for feeling what we are feeling.

In doing so, and then sharing with others,  we become closer through disclosure.

Offering someone insight into who we are and what we are experiencing allows them to understand and see us more accurately; and by doing so, we role model to them how to allow and accept what they are feeling as well.

So even though it can be scary, practice being more vulnerable.

It's likely to feel uncomfortable at first; the practice is to let that be okay.

Discomfort is temporary.

But connection can last.

Want to hear more about how to do this? Check out this week's podcast episode; I talk at length with guest Robert Strock on how to sit with emotions that are difficult, and how to tend to that discomfort by being kind and compassionate towards ourselves.

I hope you found this WisdomWednedsay tool helpful!
