WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND?

Get Vulnerable

You need love. You get scared. You hide.

If that's true for you, congratulations! you are a member of the human race. My advice to you is simple but not easy…if you want love, you have to let people know you and you have to let yourself feel deeply. No one can love YOU if you're pretending to be someone else and you can't numb yourself to strong emotional experiences and still be able to receive heartfelt, warm, sweet love. Get honest with yourself. Get vulnerable with your true friends. Get loved on a soul level. {end story}

 You feel like you're doing what AKM says ~ or that you're able to start?

    My problem with being vulnerable is it makes me feel so — vulnerable. Duh, right?

    Vulnerability can only happen in a place of trust, within yourself and those around you. Needless to say I don’t trust my family (and my therapist agrees) so I until that time I won’t be able to feel loved and accepted with them

      I’m sorry about your relationship with your family. I think you are right about needing to be able to “trust” to be vulnerable and think there is nothing more important than being able to trust yourself to get through whatever the vulnerability brings to you.

    Whew! It is not easy to put yourself out there, but the rewards are great. maybe just start by putting a toe in the water with someone who is really dependable. Take your time. It will come.
