Let’s talk about vulnerability

Hey there, 20 somethings!

It’s been some time since my last post. I’ve been in a relatively stressful place, trying to do so many things at once. Naturally, I strive for perfection, which I am beginning to realize is unrealistic. Have no fear, I will get there, and whatever you are working on, you will get there too.

Today, I wanted to share with you a Ted Talk which my Mom sent me. I’m alway open to any sort of self-improvement inspiration or encouragement. Although this wasn’t exactly a topic that I really felt necessary to explore in the moment, upon listening and understanding the greater meaning of this discourse it really resonated with me.

My mom sent me (and the rest of my family) a Ted Talk on the topic of vulnerability. It was only about a year ago that I learned that as a human, I am vulnerable. There is no escaping it. I had to recognize that, even if I didn’t quite understand what that meant. What is vulnerability anyway?

To be vulnerable just means that we need to understand and accept that we are prone to getting hurt. There are no guarantees in life. I can say for certain that I try to avoid some of my emotions as well as avoiding my fears and failure. This video reminded me that I need to work on embracing vulnerability.

For those who tend to reject vulnerability, this is a rather obscure concept, but Brené Brown really breaks down vulnerability in a funny and relatable way. After watching this video, it seems pretty clear that vulnerability is pertinent to human connection.
