At some point, we all experience losing someone. To give someone your heart and say – I know this could hurt so bad but I’m willing to take the risk- is being vulnerable. Be someone who dares to love because some rather not know love at all than to know hurt or grief.
It feels scary, right? It’s crazy how much energy we spend trying to avoid these tough topics when they’re really the ones that can set us free. But, knowing is never a guarantee that you are going to do better. That is the reason why we have to take action if we are to dare greatly.
“I define vulnerability as uncertainty, risk and emotional exposure. With that definition in mind, let’s think about love. Waking up every day and loving someone who may or may not love us back, whose safety we can’t ensure, who may stay in our lives or may leave without a moment’s notice, who may be loyal to the day they die or betray us tomorrow—that’s vulnerability.”
While you seek out situations to challenge ourselves, you don’t have to do things that scare you just for the sake of trying something new. Be kind to yourself and check in with how you are really feeling if you are to go out of your comfort zone.
