In learning you will teach, and in teaching you will learn.

Phil Collins

I like that we’re made this way as human beans. I always learn when I teach (which isn’t very often). It can be a vulnerable thing, teaching. Especially when you’re new but what’s great is that it goes both ways. It can also be a vulnerable thing learning something new. What makes for the greatest connection is when both parties are vulnerable with healthy boundaries. Here’s a quote about vulnerability to close.

People who wade into discomfort and vulnerability and tell the truth about their stories are the real badasses.

Jayne is a writer. On her free time she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.

  1. Great post, and love Brene Brown and her Ted on vulnerability. As a private tutor I feel what you’re talking about. Teaching is a vulnerable experience especially if you’re trying to be good at it because it takes constant learning. And in my experience, my best sessions are those that I can become vulnerable and think with the student instead of think for them or lecture them. I think teaching has given me the opportunity to realize how much I don’t know, and only then I can start learning. To be vulnerable is to be open to healing and growth.
