The Power of Vulnerability- Creating Meaningful Connections

Share This Post

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again… who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.

Theodore Roosevelt

What do you think of when you hear the word vulnerable?

Weakness, small, fearful? Andrea and Brooke think quite the opposite.

In this episode Gold Ivy gives an update on the vulnerable work they have been doing on themselves and how embodying vulnerability has been paying off for them. The human connection is what we’re all searching for and after this episode you may just find it a little easier to let the people closest to you in a bit more, voice your needs, and create more meaningful conversations where you feel fully seen.

Ivy Reflections

When I hear the word vulnerability- what comes to mind?

Who am I comfortable being vulnerable with and why?

When was the last time I was vulnerable? How did I feel after and what good came from it?

Piece of Gold

The courage to be vulnerable means taking off the armor we use to protect ourselves, putting down the weapons that we use to keep people at a distance, showing up, and letting ourselves be seen.
