To be vulnerable is to connect.
To be seen just as you are in your time of need, no hiding, no secrets, just vulnerability. That is where connection is made.
Vulnerability has always been synonymous with weakness.
Why is it weakness to show yourself unapologetically as you are, without excuses, without secrets, without masks?
Owning who you are, in all your imperfection, shining a light on all your dark places, owning your mistakes.
How do you expect to connect with others, when what you are presenting to the world isn’t your authentic self?
Be you. Be your authentic self. No apologies. Just you as you are.
Only then will people see you for who you truly are, and only then can you form those deep connections you have been longing for.
Just breathe baby, you have been waiting your whole life for this.
There was never any tricks to learn.
It was here all along.
Just be you. Do you.
Everyone else is taken. ‘I am whoever I am when I am it.’
