The Power of Vulnerability

Vulnerability take courage

Vulnerability has always been one of the hardest things for me to do. I have always thought of myself as an open book. I mean I can sit with a friend and bare my soul about personal things and things I have experienced, but the real stuff, the failures the hurts and the pain is something I keep guarded because to me it has always been a sign that you have problems.

In one of my breakthrough sessions with a coach I said "If people see that I have problems then that means I have problems" haha Pretty simplistic but that was my belief... and there is truth in that. I never wanted to be the woman who had issues or struggle. I was taught to be stoic and "strong" like my mother. I have always been told that I am so resilient but is resiliency actually a good thing if you haven't dealt with the actual issue, if you are dying inside with shame and guilt? Or is it just mask?

These are all of the questions that I started asking myself as I dove deeper into what it meant to be resilient. I started reading Brene Brown's book Daring Greatly and it changed my whole perspective on vulnerability and how it can actually be my super power.
