Real people experience both pain and joy. That’s how they know they’re real.
Vulnerable people are authentic people. Rather than pretending to be someone they are not, they are sincere. They know who they really are, warts and all, and they are not afraid to show that to others. They walk away from situations in which they cannot authentically be themselves. Becoming vulnerable in this way is a worthy goal for every person, especially recovering sex addicts, because vulnerability is the opposite of what we do in our addiction. Addiction leads to isolation; vulnerability and authenticity lead to intimate connection.
Just for Today:
Be your authentic self. In public. Consequences be damned.
