What if embracing vulnerability isn't weakness at all, but a sign of strength and resilience? What if telling our (often-hidden) personal truths connects us on a deep and transformative level?
Elloa Atkinson embodies the way of the phoenix soul: Authenticity. Vulnerability. Bravery (even/especially when you're scared spitless!). I'm honored to feature Elloa in our latest Truth Tribe interview, published in The Phoenix Soul: Journey.
What a gift to work with Elloa! She has been an inspiration on my own phoenix journey, demonstrating how love washes away shame.
It can be so scary to reveal our soft underbellies--the missteps and wobbles we are trained to hide. But you know what hiding does? It isolates us. It destroys our self-worth. It reinforces the lie that we must be perfect to be loved.
Elloa shows that fear doesn't have to be a driving force in your life (a revolutionary thought for me, as someone who has struggled with fear and anxiety since childhood). Love can lead.
