Ego weaknesses don't respond to such exhortation as "be open to your vulnerabilities."
There are basic developmentally derived ego (psychological) abilities which govern control of thinking and feelings and the sense of self (sense of who one is) and the ability to modulate mood which crucially determine one's ability to function. Knowledge of these can make one's personal difficulties logical and meaningful though certainly not eliminate them for which replacement of these deficient ego capacities with more mature ones is needed.
How can this knowledge be most effectively introduced to people without causing them to feel "crazy"?
