Who has earned the right to hear my story?

Who has earned the right to hear my story?

Life paths, career choices, relationships, cycles (all of them). Without another human to talk through these things, how could we possibly become more aware, grow, try and fail, try again, and discern better? ⁠

Our development does not happen alone! ⁠

Now, I can’t emphasize enough the importance of being able to do SOME of the work in solitude (you can’t learn to listen to yourself unless you’re with yourself), but it’s in the practice of being seen vulnerably that we collectively rise! ⁠

@brenebrown reminds us “Our stories are not meant for everyone. Hearing them is a privilege, and we should always ask ourselves this before we share: “Who has earned the right to hear my story?” If we have one or two people in our lives who can sit with us and hold space for our shame stories, and love us for our strengths and struggles, we are incredibly lucky.”⁠

Each time we share and are received by those who have earned our vulnerability, our neural pathways related to trust, courage, and confidence deepen; preparing us to dive deeper and rise higher than before. ⁠

Whether you have a pocket full of friends you can truly lean into, or are looking to build a community of loving connections, some science-backed personal insights could empower you to take your relationships to the next level. ⁠

Don’t hesitate to ask if you’re curious to learn more about yourself! ⁠
