I was listening to this book about vulnerability. In it, several people are mentioning what vulnerability is for them. I am just discovering that for me, vulnerability is talking to people who I love, telling them how much I love then and basically handing them the weapon to hurt me. Vulnerability means giving them the power of taking my love and them doing whatever they want with it.
Thankfully, I am very aware that my response to what they do with my show of vulnerability is my very own. I have the power to transform whatever happens into strength and power. I have the ability to decide what I allow in my life and what I don’t, and I can do so, making use of the power this afore-mentioned vulnerability gives me.
I truly don’t know if this makes any sense, all I know is that I am hurting, I am finding the silver lining and I am just fine.
