The Power of Vulnerability
My friend Soph mentioned this TED Talk to me the other day, advising me to see it. I had never heard of the speaker Brené Brown before but I love that her area of study is human connection, it amazes me (in a good way) that there is such a specification - it's something that comes so easily to some and so difficultly to others, there really must be limitless research possibilities in that field.
The underlying theme of the TED Talk was 'expanding perception' but more specifically in Brené's case, the power of being vulnerable - she talks about how the biggest barrier to true human connection is shame, thus, to truly connect with others, one must be openly vulnerable. As someone who finds true vulnerability far past daunting, this video really rang true to me.
What do you think of this premise?
