  • Admit "you suck" at something--accepting your faults. People will see confidence in you for admitting weaknesses.
  • Take Responsibility Instead of Blaming Others: Taking responsibility is powerful because it puts you in control; An excellent example of vulnerability because you're saying "I have a problem. I’m not perfect, but that’s okay. I can deal with it, and I will deal with it."

Emotional Vomit

Power Of Vulnerability

"It’s the backwards law in action: in order to become more resilient, more formidable, you must first bare your flaws and weaknesses for the world to see. In doing so, they lose their power over you, allowing you to live your life with more honesty and intention."

Intelligent and inquisitive mother of one son and two dogs. Not afraid to admit I'm a little crazy and weird. I love learning about social sciences, new information on mental health, meditation, yoga, dance, music, and all animals.


Vulnerability helps us work through our emotions and process them more effectively. It fosters improved emotional and mental health while living an authentic life bravely and resilient.
