we are putting it all out there on purpose and wants is out there is out there you can shut the door yes but it's too late there's the rub like me people i can't stand feeling vulnerable as someone who it's for the internet i feel vulnerable all the time even now change things i've written comments i've left things up aired on social media a friend of my recently asked how do you do that how do you start feeling vulnerable the short answer is i don't some days are more intense and others but almost every day i feel vulnerable unsure of myself and sort of like a fraud which is why recently vow to go in a digital detox data that vulnerability is good for you though is what help me recover from the vulnerability hang over and keep putting myself back out there despite their awful feeling vulnerability serves the purpose as brown says it's quote arms accurate measure of courage on quote
our minds were alive and were growing i like the way rome anchors nordic of the school of life puts it quote we a culture where making yourself vulnerable exposing your fears and uncertainties ticking emotional risks is considered a form of weakness has most of us want to run away from lebanese research reveals a hugely pa but of outcomes that emerged from stepping into the arena of vulnerability it is precisely when we expose ourselves perhaps in a relationship or at work that we have experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives i quote here are a few of my own experiences with vulnerability in the past few years and how they ve paid off number one ready about really personal issues idea with helping readers go through similar situations number two pitching a bunch of publishers my book idea getting a book deal number three confronting a friend about something i was upset about developing a deep wonderful friendship
with these and your own specific experiences in mind let's look at a few general benefits of vulnerability challenging your confirmation bias confirmation bias is our tendency to seek out information that supports what we already believe is when you just now oh tom hanks played tutsi so you google tom hanks and tutsi instead of who play to see the correct answer is doesn't hurt men and i highly recommend a video of him talking about his role but i digress you see a search result that ankle both tom hanks in the movie tossing the same title so you declare europe it was him put on your phone and tell your friends you one that bad that's cognitive bias in a nutshell challenging this buys often means opening yourself up to the possibility that you could be wrong and i feel vulnerable in college i allowed myself to be vulnerable when i debated my classmates about a social issue they felt strongly about this issue and i parted
formation i heard having grown up in a very small bubble my classmates my professor completely level me with facts and reason i cringe to think about how stupid my arguments were but if i didn't put myself out there i might have been parroting the same stupid both for years i was vulnerable and no doubt my classmates criticized in judge me rightfully so but our vulnerability encouraged me to open myself up to other ideas and admit i was wrong to be continued you just listen apart one of the posts titled how deal with a vulnerability hang over by christa moi the wild long dot com and official this post for you to morrow last time i won't be reminding you tomorrow's of this is your last reminder for the month to be unravelled books for me and as a nice way to show your support for free come by old podcast our com during my weekly newsletter you also get free spreadsheets from me a video
