Brené Brown posted this on her FB page on Nov 8, 2013: “I found the perfect image for ‘the vulnerability hangover’ – you know that feeling when you share too much and the next hour/day/week you feel like you’re wearing the emotional lampshade? I hate that feeling.”
The adjective used most often to describe my writing has been vulnerable. And so far I’m feeling okay about what I’ve shared. But I’m thinking about ordering one of these lampshades… just in case.

Oh Esther … what you wrote – on Friday and today – is beautiful. A big part of your gift is your vulnerability.
Thanks for making it safe for me to be vulnerable.
Hear Hear Karen! I have loved all of your posts Esther. I have related to them all in some way or another. AND, they all make me think!
But I have a few lampshades laying around if you would like me to bring one over 😉
lol! good thing you live close by!
