”“What makes you vulnerable makes you beautiful”
Vulnerability is defined as, “the quality or state of being exposed to the possibility of being attacked or harmed, either physically or emotionally.” This definition generates the understanding as to why vulnerability is something that is so difficult for many of us.
Fear of vulnerability is actually a fear of being rejected for who we really are. Many of us spend our entire lives hiding our True Self and trying to adapt our personalities, our preferences, and our choices around our perception of other people’s expectations.
The vulnerable part of us is where we house our deepest fears and insecurities. The problem with working so hard to keep these parts of us hidden is that we never are able to build true connections with other people.
We cultivate sincere love and connection when we allow space for vulnerability and for our True Selves to be seen. In order to do this, we need to learn to let go of our obsessions with what other people think of us. The only other alternative is to let go of how you feel, what you believe, and who you truly are; being untrue to yourself.
Being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to experience true pleasure.” –Bob Marley
