When I wrote my article on seeing the love within physical pain, I ended with the declaration that I would experiment with emotional pain the next chance I got using the same process as I did with my physical pain. I thought I would simply update that article with my experience.
At the end of this past summer, Brené Brown came to my attention through some random sequence of events that I no longer remember. Her insights through her research of shame and vulnerability really spoke to me when I heard her speak on YouTube. Following that, I checked out her audio The Power of Vulnerability and listened to it during long walks.
