Thoughts on Vulnerability & Connection

“The energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from relationship” Brené Brown

“When it comes to sharing vulnerability, it’s wise to take time to test whether the person is worthy of hearing our stories and to assess our own level of safety and comfort in sharing sensitive material. We want to trust that the other person isn’t going to deny or minimize our pain, or alternatively, over-focus on our problem in an unhelpful way. We don’t want to be put down, pitied, or gossiped about, nor do we want to have sensitive information used against us.” Harriet Lerner

“When we let go of what other people think and own our story, we gain access to our worthiness – the feeling that we are enough just as we are and that we are worthy of love and belonging.” Brené Brown

“No heart is as whole as a broken heart and I would say no faith is as solid as a wounded faith.” –Elie Weisel

“Whatever you do will not be enough, but it matters enormously that you do it.” Gandhi
