Embrace vulnerability to find strength.

Society is shifting for black women and we are trying to embrace going to therapy, taking vacations and living our soft life. We are doing all this despite the centuries of being taught to be strong, to never show our emotions, and to always have it together. We are slowly learning that vulnerability is actually the key to finding strength.

In season 4, episode one of More Than A Brand, I discussed the importance of embracing vulnerability in order to find true strength. The episode started by defining vulnerability as the willingness to show our true selves, flaws and all. It is about being open and honest about our feelings, fears, and insecurities.

I want you to understand that vulnerability is not a sign of weakness, but rather a sign of courage. It takes strength to be vulnerable and allow ourselves to be seen, heard, and to be open to the possibility of rejection or judgement. We get judged enough. Personally, vulnerability has allowed me to connect with others on a deeper level, to be more authentic in my relationships, and to let go of the need to always be perfect. I am still a work in progress, but I had to let perfect Patty go, because she isn’t realistic.

While recording this episode, I realized that the core message is “vulnerability is essential for personal growth.” By allowing ourselves to be vulnerable, we open ourselves up to new experiences, perspectives, and opportunities for learning. It is through vulnerability that we can truly connect with others, build meaningful relationships, and find the strength to overcome challenges.

This episode highlights the importance of embracing vulnerability in order to find true strength. By being vulnerable, we can find the courage to face our fears, the resilience to overcome obstacles, and the strength to live authentically. So, let us all embrace vulnerability and find the strength within ourselves to truly thrive.
