Exposing ourselves can make us feel naked + wide open. Filled with risk and fear, it can feel like stepping into the deep end of the pool. Heart pounding and gasping for breath, wondering if we’re going to drown as others look on.
While our instinct is to mask our fears, it’s this glimpse of truth we crave from others; a true connection with everything else stripped away.
Real vulnerability is admitting our shame out loud. Rather than hiding our truths, what if we lived out loud? What if we reached down deep, and trusted each other?
The act of unfiltering is truly courageous act as well as generous.
Join me and post your own truth, it will all be ok.
