So many of us fear vulnerability. We look at it as a sign of weakness when, in fact, it is a quality that demonstrates strength. It is so important for us to be able to acknowledge our fears & our emotions, not only during these times, but always. The fear of appearing vulnerable has many individuals creating facades of strength, in turn creating a barricade against others’ ability to truly see us & understand us, for It is through recognizing each others’ vulnerability that connects us.
I can’t count on both of my hands how many times my vulnerable side has been sorely mistaken for weakness & over sensitivity. It is these opinions that cause us to withdraw our vulnerability in shame, only allowing it to make an appearance when we’re alone. This is why so many struggle. Acknowledge vulnerability that you may be so grateful to witness & be present for. Let’s get rid of the negative stigma surrounding this word & encompass it with support & positivity
Be kind, be optimistic, be strong, but allow space for vulnerability. It’ll help get you through anything.
