We are all worthy of love and intimate connection.
Becoming vulnerable means trusting both ourselves and others. It is the only way to live honestly, with integrity and authenticity. When we become vulnerable—in friendships and in intimate relationships—we open ourselves up to the possibility of being wounded, trusting that we are worthy of love and that the other person won’t decide to hurt us. This is a very scary thing to do, but the ultimate rewards are joy and true connection. It’s worth the risk.
Just for Today
Be vulnerable, and trust that you’ll be loved in return—eventually, if not right away.
