In this episode of the True Beauty Podcast, Judy and Anne-Sophie talk about vulnerability and shame.
“Shame is the lie someone told you about yourself.”
― Anaïs Nin
Shame is the fear of disconnection.
We all have this feeling, even if we don’t want to admit it. Nobody likes to talk about it, which is quite natural, but won’t help the process of connecting with yourself and others.
People with a sense of worthiness have
- courage (who you are with your whole heart) to be imperfect
- compassion to be kind to themselves first and then to others
- connection as a result of authenticity: willing to let go of who they thought they should be in order to be who they are
- embrace vulnerability
What is vulnerability?
Vulnerability is the willingness to say I love you first, do something where there are no guarantees and everything that has to do with insecurity.
Vulnerability is the birthplace of joy, creativity, belonging, love and much more.
What do we do in order to not feel vulnerable:
- we numb
- we blame
- we perfect
- we pretend
What is the better way to deal with vulnerability?
- Let ourselves be seen
- love with our whole hearts
- practice gratitude
- lean into joy
- I am enough!
