Which means today we’re going to be Keepin’ It Real (actually, that should be everyday 🙂
Today is an extra special episode because I have my girl, Sara Liz Davidson, right here from Kansas City join me on today’s Keepin’ It Real.
I love my girlfriends more than anything. But it wasn’t always this nice and sweet.
There was a point where I had very “iceberg” relationships (watch the video to know what I’m talking about).
One of the main obstacles that prevent people from having fulfilling and intimate relationships filled with substance is a lack of vulnerability. We walk around with these masks on our face, thinking we need to be someone else in order to be loved and accepted.
Well,, that’s WAY more work that just being you. And I understand. I was one of those people. I would say things to please people, I would do things to be accepted, and every time I wasn’t being 100% VASAVI— a part of me would die.
Watch today’s Keepin’ It Real with Sara and I where we talk all things, friendship, vulnerability, and keepin’ it real. By the way, if you are looking for a great read on this very topic, then I highly recommend Brene Brown’s book, Daring Greatly. Brene was featured on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday and she truly is a phenomenal researcher, storyteller, and expert on vulnerability. And, she’s a fellow Social Worker!!!!
Don’t try to win over the haters; you’re not a jackass whisperer. (click to tweet)
After you’re done watching, I would love for you to practice vulnerability in the discussion section below:
How do you know when you’re being vulnerable? How do you know when you’re wearing a mask? There is no shame in admitting if you have worn a mask. Most people DO!!!!!
I can’t wait to talk to you in the discussion below 🙂
Have a great week and here’s to you DARING GREATLY!!!!
