There is something about vulnerability coming up. I am writing about an experience that I felt very uncomfortable about and I notice this awareness that someone, without me verbalizing what I felt uncomfortable about, could actually know exactly what I am talking about through intuition.
This led me to remember how many times I have tried to “hide” the way I am feeling, especially when I feel attracted to a man, because I don’t want them to “know” I am attracted to them for different reasons because then I will be vulnerable and vulnerable means “not safe”.
Vulnerable means not safe? Since when?
Oh, “When I expose myself to others vulnerably, they can “use” that information “against” me to hurt me, essentially,” is the response I get inside.
OK, so there was something important about protecting myself at some point from being vulnerable because being vulnerable meant that I could be hurt physically, mentally or emotionally.
Oh, this could even mean Spiritually or sexually too.
So this is a lot to be uncovered now.
What comes up for you around vulnerability?
