I love group therapy. In my experience, it is less like traditional one-on-one therapy and more of an intentional space to learn and grow alongside others. With that, I have been truly amazed at the response that Brene Brown’s work “Daring Greatly” has received. To be honest, the content is quite gut-wrenching. I mean, she tackles the very essence of what most people struggle with–vulnerability. The receptivity of her work, though, is an indication of not only how important it is but how much we all struggle to be vulnerable in our own lives.
Our culture has taught us–ever so well– that to be “vulnerable” is to be weak. We can’t respect a man who openly cries in front of others. We can’t openly admit our addictions or struggles to others. It’s a sign of weakness. We do this with the hope that the “I-have-it-all-together” facade will help us climb the social and corporate ladders of life. We do this because vulnerability is too much of a risk.
What if, what if vulnerability is the greatest measurement of our courage? With over 12 years of research on shame, Brene Brown believes we have to walk through vulnerability in order to courageously love, live, and lead in our lives.
