The Power of Vulnerability


Screen Shot 2018-01-18 at 13.56.56.png

there’s so much power

in being our true, authentic self

in being raw, being real

in being vulnerable

 

we get and give the chance

to recognize ourselves in each other

in our struggles

in our weirdness

that we always thought

to be alone with

 

because we built facades 

we pretend to have it figured out

we pretend to be okay

we don’t show weakness

we don’t show too much sensitivity

we don’t show who we are

afraid to be too different

and somehow not right

 

there’s so much power

in being our true, authentic self

in being raw, being real

in being vulnerable

 

we recognize ourselves in each other

in our humanness

in our spirit

realizing we are all one

 

so let us take off our masks

reveal our raw beauty 

admit that we don’t have it figured out

show that we are not always okay

embrace every aspect of our being

and through that create a safe space

for someone else to do the same
