vulnerability is not...

I’m a huge fan of vulnerability - thank you Brené Brown for educating me on its importance.

But three things:

  1. We can’t be vulnerable behind a screen.

  2. We can’t be vulnerable to thousands of people at once.

  3. Rarely does vulnerability begin with “I’m going to be vulnerable right now”.

In other words we can’t use vulnerability to try and build ourselves up: that’s more like control and ego disguised as vulnerability and that might be why we feel like it doesn’t work so often.
