Vulnerability is Love
I think this word we all as humans try to shield ourself from. It’s exposure to who you really are. It’s exposure to your true feelings and emotion.
I am guilty of shielding my heart from pain and protecting myself. It’s normal we think…
Life is not about protecting yourself though. Life is living in the moment. Life is breaking down those barriers and really exposing your true self to others without the fear of rejection.
Rejection. Another word that we shield ourselves from. No one likes to be rejected. Isn’t it better though to be rejected for who you are then to hide behind someone you aren’t?
I feel the most vulnerable when I sing. I know I have a great voice and to me singing is therapeutic and a way for me to talk with God but I don’t do it in front of others because of fear. Fear of rejection. Fear of being vulnerable.
These two words vulnerability and rejection… they are something we all deal with on a daily basis. We can overcome these imaginary emotions through self love and respect and living honestly. Living who you really are.
Laying out by the pool yesterday a girl shamelessly took a selfie and I thought, “good for her”. I respect shameless selfies. I don’t respect the ones that try to hide it or that do the selfie from the side pretending that someone else took it. You know? I mean if you’re going to do a selfie do it with no shame and own it. Own that selfie. Smile really big and love yourself. 🙂
Love yourself and be proud of who you really are. Self acceptance is the first step. We were all made perfectly unique. One of a kind. Isn’t that something to celebrate?
Be fearless. Be happy. Be you.
