Hey all. How are you doing?
Happy New Year! I wanted to post this video of a TED Talk by Brené Brown on The Price of Invulnerability. I know I’ve already posted another video on vulnerability by this same speaker and this is a wonderful addition to that.
Check it out.
TEDxKC talk synopsis: In our anxious world, we often protect ourselves by closing off parts of our lives that leave us feeling most vulnerable. Yet invulnerability has a price. When we knowingly or unknowingly numb ourselves to what we sense threatens us, we sacrifice an essential tool for navigating uncertain times — joy. This talk will explore how and why fear and collective scarcity has profoundly dangerous consequences on how we live, love, parent, work and engage in relationships — and how simple acts can restore our sense of purpose and meaning.
