I’m Thinking of Ordering One of These

Brene Brown vulnerability hangover

Brene Brown photoBrené 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.

    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 😉
