I was thinking about vulnerability today. What makes it so wonderful and intensely frightening. There are aspects involved in any sort of relationship that are crucial. Trust. Sensitivity. Communication. Vulnerability, for sure. I see trust, sensitivity, and communication sprouting from the initial ground that is vulnerability. When you are vulnerable, you risk vast amounts of feelings with the other person. Hence the reason why so many other relational goodness’s can be found growing from being vulnerable.
Basically, I was thinking about how often people take advantage of others’ willingness to be vulnerable, honest, and overwhelmingly open about the things that are truly important. It shouldn’t matter what the issue is–God loves us exactly where we are, how we are.
And I just think we should all be doing the same.
