The Value of Vulnerability

I’m learning that to speak your truth takes courage. It takes an immense amount of self love to put yourself out there, not with armour but in the suit of your vulnerability. To stand in your power, to be unafraid of your voice, to share not only your light but even your darkest moments without shame. There may be some rotten tomatoes thrown your way for everyone has their own truth, beliefs, perspectives, triggers and projections. But to live in a world where we need to hide our truth, quieten our voices and be small so as to appease others, that is a world too sad for me to live in. I get scared sharing sometimes, but more often than not, my sharings are met with kindness and compassion and most importantly, with the reflection that I am not, we are not, alone in our experience. And that is what makes being vulnerable worth it.
