Unapologetically Sensitive

We explore how sensitivity weaves itself into our lives; the richness that it adds, and the strengths we have BECAUSE of our sensitivity--and some of the challenges it poses as well. You may learn to live a bolder, brighter life.

The Gift Of Vulnerability is Connection; That’s Why I Take the Risk


Christina Miglino


The gifts of vulnerability! What is vulnerability? Why would you want to be vulnerable? What makes it difficult to be vulnerable? How shame can inhibit vulnerability.  Calling our power back. We also talk about the connection between courage and vulnerability by Brene Brown.


  • I didn’t really fit the model of the 9-5er who’s hustling to make ends meet
  • Being highly sensitive means I need breaks; I need time alone; I need to pay attention to my energy systems
  • I get to own my schedule and make time for the things that do matter and allow me to perform really well and to be my best self in my work
  • I’m highly sensitive and I’ve pushed myself to a level that is totally unhealthy work wise
  • Symptoms can be like arrows pointing to where we need to slow down
  • Symptoms can include—migraines, fatigue, depression, overwhelm, irritability, being more negative
  • We get to see that we’re more similar than different
  • It’s not unusual for someone to feel too afraid to step through that [being vulnerable] and expose themselves
  • Fear keeps me from being vulnerable because I’m afraid I’m going to be rejected
  • Brene Brown defines vulnerability as having these elements
    1. uncertainty
    2. emotional risk
    3. emotional exposure
  • Brene Brown talks about the relationship between courage and vulnerability
    1. Can’t have courage without vulnerability
    2. Can you think of a time when you were courageous and you DIDN’T have
      • Uncertainty
      • Risk
      • Emotional exposure
