Vulnerable. That's how I've been feeling lately. Open and raw.
I'm learning, after all, these years, that it's good to be vulnerable. But, it wasn't until I watched Brené Brown 's TedTalk about shame and vulnerability.
I may have always been okay with it, just never had a concrete reason to be okay with it.
Brené spoke to me. Yes, I feel like I'm on first name basis with her. No, I am not. But, she spoke to my heart about shame and being worthy of love.
I went on and researched other talks she has given and books that she has written. She speaks with warmth and humor. I feel as if she reaches out and touches my heart.
Brené understands feeling sadness to know joy. I also think I need to work with a therapist to sort out my anxiety and depression.
I shared her talk on my personal Facebook page. Apparently, I'm the last of my friends to know of her. And, I was sent this by one of my lovely friends.
And, I returned it.
Here are five quotes that endeared me to her forever.
