Why risk being vulnerable?

Have you ever had a vulnerability hangover? Remember a time when you were nervous to reveal something personal...and then right afterward you felt a little sick and thought, “Why did I just do that?!”

THAT is what a vulnerability hangover feels like.

We can be so guarded sometimes. And there are certainly times when boundaries are healthy and appropriate.

But to create true intimacy and trust, it goes a long way to share what’s really going on inside of you.

(Oftentimes, the scarier the reveal, the better!)

If you’re at a point where you want to go deeper with someone, let yourself be vulnerable!

Doing so, creates a space for others to be open with you. Love and friendship deepens. Connections and communication are strengthened.

Contrary to how it may feel, vulnerability creates safety. Give it a try 😉
