In Brene Brown’s TED Talk, “The Power of Vulnerability,”  Dr. Brown explains her research and discusses the concept of wholeheartedness. Her studies show that wholehearted people have COURAGE, COMPASSION, CONNECTION and allow themselves to be VULNERABLE.  Wholehearted people believe they are worthy of love and belonging.

Consider watching this talk, as well as reading Brene Brown’s book, “The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are.” Crispina Chong-Han, MD, Orange County Physician Wellness Co-Champion, provides a book review in this post.
