I have been brave enough to be vulnerable.
So many of us feel alone, even when we are surrounded by others we call friends and family.
Inside, regardless of present company, we feel misunderstood and scared. We worry that telling people about our fears will make them think less of us. We wonder if anyone else feels the same way we do.
We convince ourselves that we are weird, that no one else hears the voices in their head. And that we are the only one who needs a hug. Well wake up! You aren’t alone. Be brave enough to open up to those you love, and you’ll see that I’m right.
Tear down any emotional brick walls you have built around yourself. Owning your story can be hard, but not nearly as difficult as spending your life running from it.
Embracing your vulnerability is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and friendship and personal growth – the life experiences that require you to be the most vulnerable.
