“Our unwillingness to be vulnerable contextually actually makes us more vulnerable globally.” – Toku
This episode is different to I Love You Man episodes so far.
I asked fellow Heartman, http://kylewood.me/avanafil-vs-viagra/ (http://kylewood.me/125-mg-viagra/), to come on and talk with me about one specific question that I’ve been getting from men while working on this project.
The question is around ‘Why do I want to be vulnerable?’ which I think can be answered by defining what being vulnerable means.
It’s a much shorter format than usual. It’s been inspired by Good Life Project’s short riffs.
I’ll be posting more of these in the future as well as continuing with full length, hour-long vulnerable conversations with men.
Here’s the Fire and Ice article we are referring to during the conversation.
“Being vulnerable means to be permeable.” [tweetthis]”Being vulnerable means to be permeable.” – Toku @mindfitmove[/tweetthis]
So your curious about this whole vulnerable thing and how it might impact your life, but where do you go from here?
I’ve put together some recommended resources below that will help you get started.
First, check out this TED Talk by researcher Brené Brown that started the vulnerability movement. It’s had over 21 million views.
Next, check out this article I put together where I asked 18 men for their perspective on vulnerability.
Finally, have a listen to these two podcasts.
- My last interview with Toku: From Strippers To Silence (ILYM001)
- The round table I did on vulnerability with Toku, Elloa Atkinson and Gregory Berg on Greg’s show, Life On Purpose: Round Table #2 on Vulnerability
