Is Vulnerability Worth It?

Being open and authentic in a world that is still afraid of being real.

Because it is.

Is life really worth it if you can’t be you yourself?

Usually attributed to Dr. Seuss, but he added on to Bernard M. Baruch’s original quote.

You could be saving a life.

From SXSWEdu 2014 — Sadly this is only 1/3 of the talk!

What people think about you is none of your business.

“Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen…Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage. Truth and courage aren’t always comfortable, but they’re never weakness.” ― Brené Brown

“What happens when people open their hearts? ….they get better.” ― Haruki Murakami

So is vulnerability worth it?
