On Vulnerability

"We are never so vulnerable as when we love"-Sigmund Freud

This quote is so applicable, as it sums up exactly what I love about my job-the imperfect art of vulnerability. I so appreciate the rawness of vulnerability that is unveiled in the therapeutic setting. I am truly humbled and privileged to be able to witness other humans working through their fears and resistance in order to create a positive change in their lives. People often mistake vulnerability for weakness when in actuality, facing yourself and 'showing up' to treatment is the most noble and courageous thing that you can do. Freud said it best "Out of vulnerability will come strength". Cheers, to being brave and vulnerable.
