Lately I've been learning a lot about myself and this week I've been thinking a lot about shame and vulnerability in my own life. I'm feeling an urgency about figuring out any dysfunction in myself because I know that the best way to teach my children to become loving, healthy, productive adults is to BE a loving, healthy, productive adult. We pass our dysfunctional habits on to our kids and I want to clean out my closet before it's too late. Brene Brown has a lot of wisdom to offer regarding vulnerability, perfectionism and shame. Here's a little Brene taster for you. (I highly recommend her Book "The Gifts of Imperfection"). Question: how can embracing vulnerability make us better parents and/or better writers?
