Hello everyone. My name is Sophie Bayers, and I also attend the University of London. I’m here today to speak about this new tendency for public display of emotions and vulnerability and how this might influence our level of success.
If you numb vulnerability, you also numb your emotions, joy and happiness. That leads to being miserable and looking for purpose and meaning in something you can’t get
without giving a piece of yourself. By numbing all bad feelings you have, and trying to hide them, you automatically hide away all the good feelings inside of you too.
To live your life the best but maybe not the easiest, you have to feel all the aspects of living. This includes showing when you’re sad.
