★Power of Vulnerability

“Vulnerability is not weakness. And that myth is profoundly dangerous.” Brené Brown

Watch this talk »
TED Video The Power of Vulnerability
Brené Brown studies human connection — our ability to empathize, belong, love. In a poignant, funny talk, she shares a deep insight from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity. A talk to share. (Filmed at TEDxHouston.)

video-thread TED Video The Power of Vulnerability-same as one in intro

Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket–safe, dark, motionless, airless–it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable. C. S. Lewis

“As long as anyone believes that his ideal and purpose is outside him, that it is above the clouds, in the past or in the future, he will go outside himself and seek fulfillment where it cannot be found. He will look for solutions and answers at every point except where they can be found — in himself.” – Erich Fromm

SOME SPORTS ANNOUNCER ASKED CHARLES BARKLEY,WHEN HE WAS PLAYING
IN THE NBA FINALSCHARLES HOW DO YOU HANDLE THE PRESSURE AT THOSE
TENSE MOMENTS WHEN THE GAME IS ON YHE LINE”?
AND HE THOUGHT FOR A MOMENT AND SAIDPRESSURE!!!ISN’T THAT SOMETHING YOU PUT IN TIRES

VULNERABILTY IS PERHAPS A GOOD THING IT CAN REMIND YOU THAT YOUR NOT THE
THE CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE,AND IT’S A WAY OF GIVING THE EGO A REST.

Thinking of a witty or wise comment to this theme of love being the proper drug so to speak.

Off the cuff I will say this as a human who has wisdom from life experience.

If you understand the wisdom of investing or loving yourself first,you are not so dependant or

vulnerable to the other persons decisions.

Powerful topic! Thank you for putting this up.

Being undefended is a remarkable beauty. One thing that I find is that it allows for us to be natural and comfortable just "being". 

There are so many defended ways of not connecting. I think being open and vulnerable means that you have grown your inner element, and you comfortable with who you are. You are comfortable being comfortable! It's like learning balance, and after you learn it, it becomes natural.
