I’m frequently asked why do we hide the beauty of our vulnerabilities. My response is always the same, because we are scared. We are scared that it will provide us with access to the depths of who we are, and we are not yet prepared to deal with. I believe one of the ways to experience the true depth of our own sense of compassion and love is by being open and honest about our own woundedness and vulnerabilities with those that love us and we love. Being open to our vulnerabilities builds on the strength, breathe and elasticity of our own self worth, which provides us with a protective shield of armor against hate, shame and intolerance from ourselves and others.
