This seems to be a scary word. Like… no… I can’t let everyone see who I really am…
This was me for quite some time. You could say I was an overly sensitive person. I am still sensitive, but I am learning how to “balance” it. I am able to respond appropriately because I internalize my emotions now (for the most part- LOL). I had the tendency of responding on impulse- with regret shortly after.
The key was to become vulnerable with myself. I stopped looking at myself as the victim- I started to identify my role in various circumstances. I then understood every wound was to strengthen me. To prepare me for what’s to come. I continue to place the lessons in my backpack as I wish not to repeat these tests. Some times are better than others, but either way- there is progress.
How do you feel about vulnerability? Does it cause more harm or benefits?Tell me about a time when you were vulnerable. What was the outcome? Were you satisfied with the outcome?
