Brene Brown on faith

as a lover of all things certain, i wanted faith to work like an epidural; to numb the pain of vulnerability. as it turned out, my faith ended up being more like a midwife – a nurturing partner who leans into the discomfort with me and whispers “push” and “breathe.” faith didn’t make my life less vulnerable or comfortable, it simply offered to travel with me through the uncertainty.
