It was this video that prompted me to choose the word “vulnerable” (or “vulnerability”) for the second installment of Self Discovery, Word by Word. I encourage you to watch it.
I think there’s a lot of power in being vulnerable…it’s what I do here with this blog and it has helped me in ways I never would have expected. In particular, being vulnerable has shown me that my feelings cannot destroy me. I can be with my feelings, positive or negative, and not need to turn to food (or shopping or alcohol).
Being vulnerable is healing. I have found that when I allow myself to vulnerable, I am – paradoxically – powerful.
Thank you to all the wonderful and inspiring bloggers who allowed themselves to be vulnerable by participating in this powerful exercise!
