Brene Brown Ted Talk on YouTube: Vulnerability as Key to Love, Happiness and Healthy Relationships


Brene Brown’s Ted Talk on Vulnerability is Key to Loving Relationships. Watch this Inspiring YouTube Video.

Even if you’ve seen this amazing Ted Talk, I encourage you to watch it again. Here are 10 highlights from her talk for you to save and share:

  1. “Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy – the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”
  2. “You are imperfect, you are wired for struggle, but you are worthy of love and belonging.”
  3. “Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make every day. It’s about the choice to show up and be real. The choice to be honest. The choice to let our true selves be seen.”
  4. “Faith is a place of mystery, where we find the courage to believe in what we cannot see and the strength to let go of our fear of uncertainty.”
  5. “The dark does not destroy the light; it defines it. It’s our fear of the dark that casts our joy into the shadows.”
  6. “Shame corrodes the very part of us that believes we are capable of change.”
  7. “Imperfections are not inadequacies; they are reminders that we’re all in this together.”
  8. “If we share our shame story with the wrong person, they can easily become one more piece of flying debris in an already dangerous storm.”
  9. “Shame works like the zoom lens on a camera. When we are feeling shame, the camera is zooms in tight and all we see is our flawed selves, alone and struggling.”
  10. “Sufficiency isn’t two steps up from poverty or one step short of abundance. It isn’t a measure of barely enough or more than enough. Sufficiency isn’t an amount at all. It is an experience, a context we generate, a declaration, a knowing that there is enough, and that we are enough.”
