Embracing Vulnerability

Hey everyone,

Let’s talk about something we all experience but might not always openly discuss – vulnerability.

Sharing Brene Brown’s TED Talk on Vulnerability here (Good to watch!):

So what IS vulnerability? It’s the process of shedding our fears and shame, and it’s a concept that can feel intimidating. We often see it discussed in the context of professionals, but it’s something that’s relatable to all of us.

Question 1: Have you ever thought about what it means to be vulnerable and how it plays a part in your life, personal or professional? Share any of your experiences or insights that come to mind :slight_smile:

We often hear about experts, like counselors, having moments of vulnerability despite their training. They make mistakes, just like the rest of us. Why does this happen?

Question 2: What are your thoughts on why experts, despite their schooling and training, still make mistakes? Do you think it’s because they are human, or is there more to it?

As Dr. Brene Brown emphasizes in her work, vulnerability isn’t a weakness but a source of strength. It’s a part of our shared human experience. We all face challenges and setbacks, and it’s how we respond to these moments that defines our personal growth.

Let’s discuss this vital topic and share our thoughts and stories. Your insights can help us all learn and grow together.

Looking forward to hearing your perspectives! :blush:
