How to Connect With Communities Authentically Without Fear
Being vulnerable can help us connect with our communities and audiences in a more authentic way. It can also help us form genuine relationships with others. When we are vulnerable, we are opening ourselves up to others and show them our authentic selves. This can help us connect with others on a deeper level, and it can also help us build trust. Fear works against us. It disconnects us from the communities we want to establish. Fear soothes us and draws our attention to things. It also diverts our attention away from reality and gives us a distinct set of facts to deal with. Fear makes sense for us and provides a reason for avoiding showing up as ourselves.
You need to actually build a relationship with yourself.
“The word vulnerability keeps coming up and as long as you are searching for that object of anxiety, that object of fear, it closes you off from community.”

- How being inauthentic leads to mistrust in communities.
- What does it really mean to be an authentic community leader or member?
