Storyboard Text

  • Hi Emily!
  • Hey Alice.
  • What happened?
  • I failed my math test.
  • I just feel like I need to be perfect all the time and when I'm not I feel like a total failure. I hate being vulnerable.
  • Emily and Alice meet up after class.
  • Emily, from reading Christian Anthropology and Daring Greatly I have come to understand that vulnerability is not a bad thing. Instead, vulnerability can help us understand each other and to not feel lonely. It means embracing neediness and recognizing that we are not perfect.
  • Wow! I never thought about vulnerability like that.
  • Alice sees that Emily is upset.
  • I think you are completely right. After all, we are only human and we cannot always be perfect. We shouldn't hate ourselves for making mistakes. Vulnerability is actually positive.
  • Emily wants to be perfect and does not like being vulnerable.
  • I'm happy I could help!
  • Thank you!
  • Emily references the following: "... social cues that make our neediness seem shameful and anything less than perfection seem sinful" (Saracino 50). "Perfectionism is not teaching them to strive for excellence" (Brown 222).
  • Emily changes her view on vulnerability.
  • Alice and Emily both understand that vulnerability is a positive thing.
