People comment a A LOT about my vulnerability.
Usually, it is one of two options, they either celebrate it massively, or they tell me it's too much and they want to run from it.
People often tell me that I am brave for being vulnerable. Online and in person.
But this is what I am learning.
We are wired into the depths of our DNA to be vulnerable. To share with one another what is truly on our hearts.
The disconnect is that our culture, our families, our peers or whatever has conditioned us to live in shame. To live in fear.
Fear of being judged. Fear of being rejected. Fear of being "too much".
Well now, that I have opened my flood gates of vulnerability, it is impossible for me to go back to surface. I just can't do it. It is out of alignment with my true self to engage in anything that does not embrace vulnerability to some degree.
And I believe that the reason my vulnerability is either celebrated or scorned is because when I share something that touches someone's heart, it rings a bell in their system that is CRYING OUT to be vulnerable. To be seen. To be heard, supported, and loved unconditionally.
Human suffering is not unique.
You are not the only person on this planet that suffers.
Sharing in vulnerability the truth of your heart allows you to align yourself with someone else, in love. Whether that person is watching you from afar online or sitting across from you on your bed.
Being vulnerable is scary and hard, but only at the beginning. After that, it feels like home.
And home is where the healing happens.
Yours, and the healing of others.
If you don't share your suffering, you've suffered for nothing.
