"What makes you vulnerable makes you beautiful." –Brené Brown
This quote is one that I would classify as epic. I am one that struggles with feeling vulnerable because I have a great fear of looking weak in the eyes of those around me. The words “Vulnerable makes you beautiful” are like splints on my sprained vulnerabilities. They solidify that I’m not weak and being vulnerable can be a strength because it allows me to be real when others are having their own struggles. I can show that everyone has something in their lives that could hold them back but they don’t have to let it. Being open, human and vulnerable means that we can find others to band together with us and together we have a whole new kind of strength. Vulnerable IS beautiful because vulnerable can mean strength, hope and life.
