When you think of vulnerability, which thoughts automatically come to mind? Do you think of being defenseless or distressingly exposed?
Whenever I make those associations, there’s always a negative connotation to the emotion. But what about the good and more beneficial kind of vulnerability? What about the kind where you share yourself for the potential to forge a connection with those around you?
I tend to think that expressing a vulnerable state doesn’t necessarily require disclosing very personal information right away.
I do believe, however, that by showing people who you are (flaws, quirks and all), and ‘letting them in,’ you’re demonstrating vulnerability in a positive light. You’re asking to be seen.
