How Do You Define Vulnerability?

Brene Brown- Finding Vulnerability

Finding love after a diagnosis of herpes begins with accessing our own vulnerability. We must learn to love ourselves, wholeheartedly, before we can reach out and love another. Everyone holds a certain amount of shame in their lives and yet some move through it while others retreat. I just discovered Brene Brown on YouTube over the weekend. She is a researcher/storyteller who is absolutely amazing! She has spent the past several years studying vulnerability and shame. Check out this video and learn how vulnerability can lead to greater intimacy and connection. I just ordered two of her books on Amazon and can’t wait to read them. Obviously, disclosing our herpes status places us in an extremely vulnerable place, but like I have always said, it also opens the gateways to greater levels of intimacy and partnership!
