Beauty in Vulnerability
Today I would like to talk about the Beauty in Vulnerability…
It can be tough to be vulnerable. We aren't convinced of our lovability or virtue - we worry that if we let people see the real us, they will judge us harshly and we will be left feeling exposed and alone.
So instead, we put on a brave face and act like everything is okay, even when it's not.
But by doing this, we hold ourselves back from forming meaningful relationships with others and from achieving our greatest potential.
Let's learn to be vulnerable anyway - it's worth the risk.
I'm not sure how I feel about this new study that says we are more likely to be successful if we feel insecure and vulnerable.
On one hand, it's good to know that our insecurities can be powerful motivators. On the other hand, it kinda sucks to admit that we're never really good enough.
And knowing that our vulnerability is actually a strength doesn't make us feel any less exposed. But maybe, just maybe, this information can help us learn to love ourselves a little bit more despite our flaws.
After all, if we want to achieve great things, we have to start by believing in ourselves. So let's embrace our vulnerability and use it as a tool for success!
But wait a minute!!! I don’t know about you but sometimes I have felt like I'm an imposter. It can be as simple as talking to a group of women considered to be my girlfriends and before I knew it, I began to listen to this inner voice that came out of nowhere that I clearly absorbed and made all this up in my head.
Am I the only one that goes through this? I don’t think so. It was a feeling of self-disgust and it drove me crazy!!!
Not until I began talking to it back and actually began to stand up for myself did I begin to change because I became sick and tired of feeling vulnerable in a very negative way. I had to get a grip on it!
Do you know what I mean? In general, we suffer because a little too much of how we feel is shut away in the unconscious mind. It can be scary at times.
I began to learn that there is a default balance between conscious and unconscious that tends to be wrong.
It is our responsibility to make an effort to correct the imbalance and bring more of our lives into the conscious realm.
In other words, we need to SNAP OUT OF IT!
I began transforming my life and battle against timidity!
We've all been there - trying to do everything we can to make someone else happy, even if it means sacrificing our own happiness in the process.
It's so easy to get lost in trying to make someone else happy that we forget to focus on our own needs. Before you know it, you're shrinking yourself down to fit into someone else's idea of what's perfect.
We all know that being vulnerable is good for us, but it's hard to let ourselves be open and exposed.
It can be really tough to be vulnerable. We're worried about what others will think of us, or we might be scared of getting hurt.
But being vulnerable is so worth it! When we let down our walls and share our feelings, we build empathy and connection with others. This can help us to work through our emotions easier, and foster good emotional and mental health.
The best thing you can do is learn how to love and accept yourself for who you are. Once you have that foundation, it becomes a lot easier to recognize when someone is trying to take advantage of your good nature.
