The Power of Being Vulnerable
Talking about your feelings can be scary. 

Most are afraid of being judged. Or, even worse, they're afraid that they'll be rejected once they open up to someone else. 

Many spend their days trying hard to make sure they're not vulnerable and exposed, but vulnerability can be powerful and can help them truly connect. 

Dr. Kathryn Foster is a marriage and family therapist who has seen first­hand how difficult it is for people to talk about their feelings but has also witnessed the power of vulnerability. 

She discusses how men and women approach feelings differently and how you can bridge the gap, accept vulnerability, and enjoy the intimacy it can bring into your life.
