Just found this--interview and TED talk are wonderful. I wonder what Dr Brown would say about the issue of repeatedly expressing vulnerability with a partner who is himself repeatedly unable or unwilling to reciprocate, and indeed shows expressions of discomfort when such vulnerability is being expressed. I have found for myself that such expressing, over time, on my part seems to feel like a form of self-harming, given the same reaction I keep getting--just wonder if Dr Brown would say that there may be certain people with whom we might need to be careful when it comes to expressing vulnerability.
