Blog ~ Vulnerability

“No one likes or wants to vulnerable...”The feeling of being vulnerable is uncomfortable and terrifying. It requires a huge leap of faith that others wont reject or take advantage of us. But unfortunately we don’t live in a perfect world and there’s no escaping the vulnerability that comes standard with humanity.
Vulnerability isn’t about showing our fears or weakness. its about not feeling like we need to be super human all of the time. Its about not being afraid to open ourselves up. its about not denying certain parts of who we are. Showing our crack to the world; rather than trying to cover them up. Its about REMEMBERING we are only human!
Of course; we shouldn’t show our vulnerability all of the time. But in the right place, the right time and with the right people; one occasion of vulnerability is a thousand instances of strength. With strength we can show our true selves and this is worth a thousand flippant sarcastic comments.
Although painful, our vulnerability is infinitely beautiful. It may not seem that way, but few things in this world are abundantly obvious. Its bout releasing our delicate pieces of who we are and allowing them to be seen by the people who care about us.
We’re human! We don’t have all of the answers and we don’t have it ll figured out. We are far from perfect. But when we pretend, when we deny the delicate parts of us, of who we really are; it not only separates from ourselves, it separates us from other people.
For many of us how are struggling, our vulnerability is crucial because pain is often rooted to us feeling separated from ourselves and others. Feeling helpless and alone.Pretending that we dont need the love and support of others around us.
If we consider the most powerful and moments of our lives, they are probably rooted in vulnerability. With this in mind, when your in your right place, with the right people; try releasing your vulnerability, it may be enough to save you XX
