We tend to subconsciously seek out the vulnerability in others while going to considerable lengths to conceal vulnerability within ourselves, even though that vulnerability can make us more appealing, courageous, and trustworthy to others. Practice sharing insecurities in appropriate situations and being honest in your communications with friends and team members, even if it makes you feel insecure or vulnerable.
- Vulnerability is the antidote for shame
- You can utilize vulnerability to connect with others in difficult situations
- Accepting your vulnerabilities and sharing them can improve your self-acceptance
