Sheesh, sometimes vulnerability IS REALLY UNCOMFORTABLE! You might be thinking, sometimes??? I was talking with my friend the other day about how uncomfortable all the meeting new people and talking to them that is required to build a business is for me. I would much rather disappear into the walls!
And. And I want greater clarity in my purpose and a meaning filled life.
Over this past year, the number of times I've put myself "out there" and splatted on my face is to many to count. And I have to say, if I didn't have the skills I learned through Brene Brown of how to pick myself up off the pavement I'm not sure where I would be today. Probably stuck face down in some mud somewhere.
You guys, I believe in Brene's work so so much. The skills I have now to recognize when I'm in a shame storm, ground myself, reach out for support, and pick myself back up have transformed my life.
And because I have built my shame resilience muscle, I am building a business, I am more connected in my relationship with my partner, I am taking risks, I am traveling, and I am pretty sure that I'm a much better therapist.
