I have been thinking a lot about the courage, strength, and healing that comes from vulnerability.
What it means to show up, take up space, and let ourselves be seen.
The most healing experiences of my life have been from sharing my truth or witnessing another speak theirs when I needed to hear it most.
In a world that loves to put people in boxes and give them labels, vulnerability breaks down barriers. It allows us to connect on a human level. It reminds us that we are all going through our own struggles and triumphs, wins and losses. It creates the space for deeper connection, honesty, love, and compassion.
As I dive deeper into my own healing and step into the work I was put on this earth to do, I continue to receive the call to show up in bigger ways, to let more of myself be seen, and to share more of my heart with all of you.
That doesn’t mean it isn’t scary. It means I feel the fear and do it anyway.
Each time I open up, whether through my writing, creating new offerings for this community, or within sessions, I get that familiar flutter in my stomach, that uneasy feeling afterward that maybe I shared too much or made a mistake. I used to want to run from that feeling but now I know it is a sign that I am showing up fully, taking risks, and speaking my truth. I take a moment to feel proud of myself for opening up, leaving my comfort zone, and sharing from my heart.
Sharing your truth not only heals you but supports the healing of the collective.
Being vulnerable is a muscle that strengthens over time, it takes practice and courage. The moments when you allow yourself to be vulnerable and speak your truth and when that brave choice gives another person permission to do the same, that is how you change the world.
It doesn’t matter where you are in your journey, the world needs to hear your story.
