I got this link from a former professor of mine and I can’t tell you how much I love it. It related so perfectly to the thoughts and feelings that I’ve been swimming through the last few weeks. Recently I’ve chastised myself for having made myself so vulnerable to someone else. This clip made me appreciate, or perhaps reminded me of, the value and power of such an action. It isn’t weak or anemic, rather it is courageous and honest. We have little hope of being seen without allowing for or sharing our weaknesses or imperfections. It is, ultimately, an act of respect and authenticity.
Watch. And then watch again.
