Brene Brown's TED talk on the Power of Vulnerability is one of the most popular. Why? Because it speaks to every human being at the core level of our humanity. It touches something truthful and honest at the heart of spirit. As Carl Rogers put it - "What is most personal is most universal".
Brene's books -
"Rising Strong", "Daring Greatly" and "The Gifts of Imperfection".
“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”
― Brené Brown
“We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves to be deeply seen and known, and when we honor the spiritual connection that grows from that offering with trust, respect, kindness and affection.
Love is not something we give or get; it is something that we nurture and grow, a connection that can only be cultivated between two people when it exists within each one of them – we can only love others as much as we love ourselves.
Shame, blame, disrespect, betrayal, and the withholding of affection damage the roots from which love grows. Love can only survive these injuries if they are acknowledged, healed and rare.”
― Brené Brown
"To let yourself soften into loving someone, to caring about something passionately, that's vulnerable. So the question becomes: How do we embrace vulnerability? And here's what I've learned from the research. We practice gratitude. We stop and be thankful for what we have." -Brene Brown
