One of my all time favorite Ted Talks is Brene Brown (no relation – I wish!) and her talk on vulnerability and its link to happiness. I know following the heels of my divorce and the subsequent Very Bad Year, it took me a long time to lay down my armor and be truly open to others. And being from Maine, I think that sometimes asking for help is the hardest thing of all, especially for those of us raised with a ‘pull-yourself-up-by-your-own-bootstraps’ mentality.
What do you think? Do you allow yourself to be vulnerable?
