What does it mean to be vulnerable?

Being vulnerable does not mean that you are weak, quite the opposite it means that you are strong and not afraid of letting people see you. Being vulnerable for some might feel as though you are being exposed or raw, letting people see what is personal or private. It takes courage to be vulnerable.

So what is the fear around vulnerability?

We could be wounded or hurt by others.

We could open ourselves to criticism or ridicule.

For these reasons alone most of us run in the opposite direction instead of being vulnerable.

What if we didn't run, instead we took little steps toward being brave and truthful with ourselves?

What would that feel like?

Authenticity goes hand in hand with vulnerability because to be honest with yourself means you can go into that place where it meets vulnerability.
