V is for Vulnerability
“It’s important to make relationships that are deeper than gossiping, drinking and hanging out. Make friends you can have deep conversations with. Make friends you can cry with. Make friends who support your life goals and believe in you”.
“When we allow ourselves to be vulnerable, we are not pretending, we are not hiding – we are simply present with whatever is going on inside us. Ironically, it is this very feeling of authenticity, that draws people to us, not the brittle effort of perfectionism.” Maureen Cooper
“To share your weakness is to make yourself vulnerable; to make yourself vulnerable is to show your strength.” Criss Jami
“Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy, and creativity. It is the source of hope, empathy, accountability, and authenticity. If we want greater clarity in our purpose or deeper and more meaningful spiritual lives, vulnerability is the path.” Brené Brown
