Being VULNERABLE …something that has a sting in it….a word that evoke being revealed….being exposed….being wounded.
Last night while pondering in my last 5 mins before bed….the word VULNERABILITY came into mind…so I wrote it down on ” my handy dandy NOTEPAD!”..lol..(channelling my inner BLUE”S CLUE”S)
While looking at this word and defining it I came across a blog post on www.LiveStrong.com that spoke of what this word is all about, so I thought I would share that link with you all:
Vulnerable …LET IT MEAN MORE than just FEAR!!! While reading that article I came to understand a bit more what being vulnerable is…it really is more than what I ever thought it was. The article opened my eyes and I am so happy it did because better understanding always leads to doing things differently because we aren’t afraid of an unknown …
I am a pretty open person and being vulnerable is high on the list of things that I do, at times I hide and I dont like the feeling because I feel like I am shielding me at those time I see that I am fearful. Mostly, I just let myself be open…sometimes yes, I get hurt (that is par for the course) I get critisized ( still par for the course) and yes I get upset about it…BUT I WOULD RATHER BE VULNERABLE because allowing myself to be vulnerable gives others ACCESS TO ME and all the things that make me, ME!! Without vulnerability I would be shut up inside my head, never sharing who I am, never saying what I think, never knowing what others think, and for me that is just a really LONELY PLACE TO BE!
