Vulnerability: TED Talk by Brene Brown

I really liked this TED talk by story teller/researcher (you’ll understand that label better after you have watched the clip) Brene Brown on the subject of Vulnerability, our willingness, or not, to take risk inter-personally, to go out on a limb and risk rejection, pain and being made to feel unworthy. Vulnerability is, of course, an essential element in handling conflict creatively, not to mention living without numbness. Over 3.5 million people have watched this talk already; maybe a sign that we are already to be a bit more vulnerable? What do you think? Willing to give it a go? Please comment accordingly.

‘When we numb [hard feelings], we numb joy, we numb gratitude, we numb happiness.’
