Vulnerability is where a relationship grows

To win trust of another in the dept of one’s soul

Open and Honest, becoming one’s self

No fear of rejection or anything else

This is a very hard place to find in oneself, vulnerability is such a beautiful thing. It is beautiful in that it is also rare. I have gone from being way to vulnerable with people to very closed and it is because I wanted so badly to connect to others and I was not afraid to let my guard down in the hopes that they would do the same. In my last experience with vulnerability, I discovered just how hateful people can be, how they can turn on you in a second. Since my last experience, I have discovered Brene’ Brown and I have to say she is a superhero. If I were still a teenager, I would probably have a poster of her on my wall! She has studied shame and vulnerability and to hear her talk about it is amazing. Most of us come from a background that does not allow us to be vulnerable, but I have to say I am on her soap box when it comes to being vulnerable with our relationships. My most beautiful relationships have been because both parties had the ability to do this. I hope you will look Brene’ up and listen to her podcast, “Unlocking Us”.
