Thanks to Brene Brown we know that vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage but is it all it’s cracked up to be? Is it helpful and even healing?

This week my friend Maria Furlough takes chapter 6 of my book Breathe Again titled Be Vulnerable: Stiff Upper Lips Need Chapstik and dives into that very question.

Here she is …

“Maria, I cannot believe you included that story on page 30 of your book!”

This was the message I received from a very good friend of mine after the release of Confident Moms, Confident Daughters and I’m not going to lie, my cheeks literally turned red on the spot.

For the sake of time I’m not going to divulge all the juice of one certain vulnerable story on page 30, but I can promise you it was amongst many of the very personal and very vulnerable details I share throughout the book.

What was I thinking??

And why on earth would I do that??

I would be lying to you if I said that I never had any moments of regret, that there were no times when I wished I had kept all my adolescent secrets to myself and chose not to share with the world that I had a hate hate relationship with my hind parts. But a long time ago I decided that being vulnerable and honest is always worth the risk of embarrassment.



You can read the rest of Maria’s story HERE and how she came to view vulnerability as not just helpful but healing
