Why We All Need to be More Vulnerable
Yes this was suppose to be funny but it’s also an important reminder to BE vulnerable with those you care about!
It can be scary but so beneficial…
For many years I carried around a misconception. (Of course, it was self implied, but I didn’t realize this until a few months ago.)
I thought that I always had to seem like I had it together, that I was always positive, and the biggest one, if I didn’t know about what they were talking about (maybe a new tv show or the sport they played), I had nothing worthwhile to add to the conversation.
Seems limiting right? Well it sure was! + It took me a long time to realize that what I was thinking about was so far from the truth.
Recently I have been trying to let go of this misconception and just be more vulnerable. It has allowed me to build better relationships with my friends and with myself.
Also I’ve been able to control my energy. By letting go, I’ve been able to focus more on the things that actually matter and not wasted energy on worrying if I said something “weird”. (Weird is in quotes because I think that the things I would overthink about weren’t generally that weird!)
It’s definitely a journey and I can’t wait to learn more along the way 💫 comment below if at any point you could relate!
