Vulnerability is just, gosh, my favorite word.
Leaning into being open with someone. Having courage to give your heart. Being heave enough to hold yourself with someone else.
Vulnerability is so, so beautiful.
When, at a young age, boys are able to be intimate with their emotions, they grow into a space where they are able to be open emotionally as men.
They are to give and receive love fully, without hesitation. Wouldn't this be such a beautiful gift to the world?
Teaching your son to be intimate with his emotions goes again everything he is told in society. But one of your jobs as a parent is to guide him to living authentically, despite what society says.
Giving him time to be with you when he's sad or mad or anxious can be the most beautiful gift you give him.
Give him the gift of being human: his emotions 💙
