Key Points from todays podcast!

 

What IS the difference between Fear and Bravery?

  • Is someone who has social anxiety, who goes to the party, but is visibly anxious, fearful or brave?
  • Is someone who has perfectionism, who finishes a text without going over and over the answers before turning it in?
  • Is someone who is ashamed of his or her body and afraid of peoples rude comments, but goes to the party anyway in the dress or outfit they love fearful or brave?
  •  

My thoughts are….they are both.

 

Begin fearful is not a weakness.

 

Allowing there to be both allows for compassion and strength

 

Brene Brown “Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen”

 

My definition of Bravery is the examples above. Having fear AND showing up.

 

Vulnerability is not a weakness. It is a measure of courage 

 

Perfectionism is an attempt to avoid vulnerability with ourselves and others.

 

Go and be brave, while being afraid. Go and make friends with vulnerability

 

“Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the BRAVEST thing that we will do”  Brene Brown The gifts of Imperfection

 

“Owning our story can be hard, but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky, but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy-the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” Brene Brown
