Another Viewpoint

VulnerabilityA conversation today, based on a question that Bumble asked me a while ago, has lead me to look at myself, and others, from a completely new viewpoint.

Bumble’s question was whether I was attracted to vulnerable people. At the time it caught me on the back foot, and I naturally answered in the negative. I said that I was accepting of people who had issues, but that I wasn’t actively attracted to such people.

However, and I may possibly be the last person in the universe to hear about Brené Brown, after watching her lecture on Vulnerability, I may have to revisit my answer, and indeed, my whole approach to connections and life.

Not a huge amount to do with Buddhism, until you get to the bit about Courage, Compassion and Connectivity. I’m not going to try to explain it, watch it for yourself.
