the dreaded "v" word.

Let's talk about vulnerability for a minute here. Does anyone else struggle with this? Am I the only person who is scared sh*tless when it comes to just putting everything on the table?

So what is it that stops us from being open and honest to people that surround us? Maybe we fear that if we say how we feel, that they won't want anything to do with us.  I constantly struggle with this. I allow myself to only reveal the good side of things, the easy side maybe? This is where we've got it all wrong. 

The moment you jump with both feet, with your whole hearted self into your vulnerability is the moment you finally allow yourself to be fully loved - unconditionally.  You are able to reveal your true self.  You are authentic, and my god - being authentic is a beautiful thing.
