The best part of the book so far (and I am only 40 pages in). Brene Brown is speaking of a conversation she had with a reporter who is considering working on his own issues related to vulnerability, courage, and authenticity. The reporter asks, “Can you give me the upside of doing this work?” She told him, “I believe that vulnerability - the willingness to show up and be seen with no guarantee of outcome - is the only path to more love, belonging, and joy.” He then asks, “And the downside?” She responds, “You are going to stumble, fall, and get your ass kicked.”
