I Allow Myself To Be Vulnerable With Those I Trust – Reflection
As many others do, I sometimes shield myself from those I trust. It is common to hide vulnerabilities from those that mean the most to us. But this can be a mistake.
By being vulnerable, I create closer and more meaningful relationships. The quality of my life is largely dictated by the quality of my relationships. Being open allows others to be comfortable and more open with me, too. Honesty is the cornerstone of any relationship and I want to have great relationships.
I have the courage to show what I may perceive to be flaws. Sometimes, what I consider to be flaws, others consider as strengths, and I am pleasantly surprised when I let my guard down.
I feel more confident and relaxed when I am open with others.
I encourage those around me to be open and vulnerable with me. I am kind and supportive when someone shares something personal with me. I feel honored to be so trusted, and it allows me to be more trusting.
My ability to be vulnerable grows by leaps and bounds. I am much more open than I once was. I grow bolder each and every day.
Today, I am sharing something personal with someone I love and trust. I feel confident that this is a wise decision. I know it makes our relationship even stronger.
- What could I share with someone I trust?
