Video: Friendship & Vulnerability

We are often told to speak to ourselves as we would to a friend, gently and lovingly. At the heart of friendship is vulnerability – a radical acceptance of oneself and another for who we truly are, the glowing and beautiful, as well as the dark and crooked. In ushering someone through the doors we keep bolted within us, we choose to trust, to be seen from head to toe, and to be loved for all of our strengths, insecurities, and idiosyncrasies. This ingeniously illustrated The School of Life video reminds us of the transformative potential of vulnerability, and asks us what love is if not acceptance.
