Doctor Brene Brown has introduced me to a notion that has moved me. Her book (and Ted Talk), The Power of Vulnerability, speaks loudly to the power of being soft. Putting yourself out there, being vulnerable, may sound easy or ridiculous, but quite truly it’s the most difficult thing we as human beings face.
On a personal note I (at least in theory) am aspiring to be more vulnerable. I’ve become quite good at “hiding”, and it’s time I throw down my shield. There is power in being soft and fragile. Perhaps that’s why we are so attracted to softness.
