Summary Every day we experience the uncertainty, risks, and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable, or to dare greatly. The author dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and argues that vulnerability is our most accurate measure of courage. In a world where "never enough" dominates and feeling afraid has become second nature, vulnerability is subversive, uncomfortable, and sometimes a little dangerous. When we shut ourselves off from vulnerability, we distance ourselves from the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives, and nothing is as dangerous, uncomfortable, or hurtful as standing on the outside looking in.
Note Includes reading guide (pages 289-303).
