Authentically You: Finding Courage in Vulnerability


Authentically-You-Finding-Courage-in Vulnerability

“Authentically You: Finding Courage in Vulnerability

Our courageous journeys towards acceptance and self-love are often riddled with resistance, fight, loss, change and ultimately, the hope for celebration of personal and shared victories. Our authenticity therefore, partly identifies with that struggle, voicing the unvoiced and plowing through fields of judgement.
But what if we would allow ourselves to look beyond what society is infusing into our identity? What if we allowed ourselves to be who we really are by letting go of internal and external expectation? To live and lead from our hearts, with compassion and connection? How do we find courage in leading others through our own vulnerability?
