TED Talk Tuesday

How do we, as humans, connect to each other?

Human connection is powerful.

It gives meaning and purpose to our lives. It creates a sense of belonging and worthiness within ourselves; a feeling that we are “good enough.”

In Brené Brown’s TED Talk, The Power of Vulnerability, she examines the human connection: our ability to empathize, belong, and love. Brown uncovers how we need to be vulnerable to develop strong relationships. However, her research discovered how we are “numb” to vulnerability: we try to discharge pain and discomfort, we try to perfect our imperfections, we try to make things certain. When we experience pain, when we cannot fix our flaws, or when we do not have certainty, we often feel shame and fear. What we need to do is be vulnerable, or make us “be seen.” We need to express gratitude, and most importantly, know that we are good enough.
