Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, acceptance, happiness, authenticity, and truth. If you can find the courage to drop the armor and take down the walls that protect you from feeling vulnerable, you will open up to the experiences that bring purpose, joy, and meaning to your life. Connection is the reason why we are all here. Everyone thrives off of feeling connected and loved. Whether it’s family, a lover, friends, or co-workers, we all want to feel true connection and pure love.
Sadly, we allow fear and shame to play a major role in our life. We hide ourselves from being seen. We close our hearts off from love, in fear of being rejected and not accepted. We play small because we are afraid of our own power.
There is no reason to hide the beautiful and authentic you. When you can embrace your true authentic self and love both your shadow and your light, you fully step into your power. By embracing and loving the real you; connection is the result. We use perfectionism and numbing to avoid feeling vulnerable and unworthy. When we are in the mind set of shame or vulnerability, we constantly feel that we aren’t worthy and good enough. Fear and shame stem anxiety, depression, anger, and self-doubt. However, when we completely embrace vulnerability, we cultivate unconditional happiness and love. Love is the most powerful force in the universe. Never be afraid to love, for it’s the most beautiful emotion we are capable of having and sharing. You can’t truly love if if you living in fear and don’t have the courage to embrace vulnerability. When we are living in a place of vulnerability and courage, we feel worthy, capable, and unstoppable of having and experiencing life’s greatest gifts.
When shame or sadness arises, you have two choices. The first option is to allow these feelings to consume your mind which creates suffering you can find the courage to allow this space of vulnerability to empower and inspire you. To be vulnerable is to be fully alive and awake in this moment. To feel something so deeply means that you are truly connected to this present moment, embracing all that it has to offer.
