Daring to be Vulnerable

Being vulnerable and unsure in a world afraid of being vulnerable and unsure takes great courage & strength. Allowing for ourselves and others to be vulnerable is fundamental to reclaiming our humaness. Without letting our guard down from time to time, we’re left holding on tight, fearing the worst to come. This tightness is contagious and I believe leads to much of the world’s fear & distrust. When we drop our guard with people we trust we give rise to much needed salvation, we say outwardly and openly I trust you with my most sacred and intimate self. The more we learn to be comfortable expressing our deeper more honest selves in the presence of others who understand and respect us for doing so, the more inner strength we find and are then able to contribute back into the world. All those worried about expressing their vulnerable side, do not fear. Let go and let flow. You’ll be surprised how many are waiting for someone to say how they really feel.
