Let’s face it; most of us don’t like to be vulnerable. Being real with other people about your weaknesses, struggles, challenges, and desires is not easy. Too often, we feel as though we need to put on a permanent front of strength and resilience. But nobody has it together all the time, and the more we pretend that we do, the more it harms us.
In fact, showing vulnerability is the more courageous choice in a world where everyone wants to seem as though they live an Instagram-perfect lifestyle. Embracing your vulnerability, and that of others, will make your life significantly better—and here’s how.
Being vulnerable helps you build confidence.
When you allow yourself to be vulnerable, you’re allowing others to see you exactly as you are. As you realize that the people you care about accept this open, authentic version of you, flaws and all, it becomes easier to accept yourself. Once you’ve accepted your true self, you will grow to love your strengths, weaknesses, quirks, and all your amazing qualities.
Vulnerability helps you build stronger and more intimate relationships.
Exposing yourself to someone else emotionally builds trust in your relationship, fosters closeness, and deepens your connection. This applies to friends, family, romantic partners, coworkers, and all relationships alike. Sharing your fears, insecurities, and weaknesses lets other know you better and makes them more willing to open up to that same degree.
When you’re vulnerable, you can overcome negative thoughts more easily.
Negative emotions thrive when we keep them hidden in silence, not allowing them to be processed. Vulnerability is all about acknowledging and accepting those negative thoughts, so you can allow yourself to let them go. Being vulnerable can help you work through past baggage and prevent future issues from becoming new baggage.
Embracing vulnerability opens you up to growth.
Being authentic, taking accountability, and processing negative emotions all serve to help you grow as a person. Accepting where you’re at makes you more open to recognizing and pursuing the work you need to do to get to where you ultimately want to be. Vulnerability challenges you in a way that inspires you to become the best, happiest version of yourself.
