New release - PASSION STRUCK


Learning How to Be Vulnerable and 5 Steps to Achieve It
How and why should you work on being vulnerable

Learning how to be vulnerable can be messy because it comes with significant risks and big rewards. It’s difficult to put ourselves out there because we fear it could impact our reputation or may even cause us to lose our partners or friends. But, the power of vulnerability also leads to finding a beautiful sense of belonging and being embraced by others.

When we are vulnerable, it allows us to tackle our negative emotions (rather than driving them away). When we learn how to be vulnerable, it promotes our mental health. Vulnerability also is a sign of bravery. We become more resilient and fearless when we embrace who we are and what we feel.

When we seal off our hearts and minds from vulnerability, we may be shielded from hurt, but by extension, we are also insulated from love and intimate connection, for they all come into our lives through the same door. Closing the door to one is sealing it to all.
