Weakness. Dependency. People think this is the same as vulnerability. I am changing this misconception. Vulnerability is not weakness. The more we break down our barriers and the less we fear rejection, the more we discover the world-and ourselves.

“Vulnerability is not weakness, and the uncertainty, risk, and emotional exposure we face every day are not optional. Our only choice is a question of engagement. Our willingness to own and engage with our vulnerability determines the depth of our courage and the clarity of our purpose; the level to which we protect ourselves from being vulnerable is a measure of our fear and disconnection.”
