Inside the Episode

What comes to mind when we say “isolation?” Is it something like a small island with a lone palm tree? We all can feel this way at times, whether that is due to a recent move or maybe a friend that has pulled away. But on an even deeper level, the truth is we all shy away from being vulnerable with those around us, creating an environment that actually isolates us more. Today we’re welcoming Aaron Walker on to the podcast, whose mission is to eradicate vulnerability and help men transform their lives. Aaron shares what it looks like to truly be vulnerable with others, why community and connection matters deeply, and more. Listen in!

Key Takeaways

  • We need someone to ask us deep and vulnerable questions on a regular basis.
  • “The truth is we don’t feel comfortable in most church settings to be vulnerable because we are only with them for a few minutes.”
  • You don’t have to worry too much about what others who aren’t in your close circle think about you. You are living your life; they aren’t.
  • Beware of asking people to weigh in on our lives when they know nothing about us; they will give a blanket answer that may lead us to the wrong decision.
  • “We have to be careful about taking advice from people that don’t have the data.”
  • The most valuable asset of a close friend is perspective.
  • It’s better to feel silly in front of your close friends than in front of the masses.
  • When we are vulnerable with others, it creates a bond with them that gives them permission to do the same.
  • Who is helping you make decisions and loves you enough to tell you the truth?
