Reader comment on Brene Brown's passage ...

Vulnerability is the Path

 My DNA allows me to engage with vulnerability.  I was born with an "exposed" nervous system which makes me highly vulnerable!  I sometimes wish I could be less so ... But there are advantages in being open to all.  Empathy, compassion and a whole lot of love have stemmed from it!  My antenna picks up on "signals" not all peoples do.  
Thankful ... In Quiet ... God's signal picked up loud and clear.

 Jo, does your condition have a formal name? I'm curious to know more about your experience. I'm currently dating someone who has asbergers syndrome and it is very difficult for him to express emotions, especially vulnerability. Being on the opposite end of the spectrum sounds fascinating as I learn more about the role of the nervous system in all of this.
