BEING VULNERABLE.

Being vulnerable is something that I, as well as I’m sure many others struggle with.  Opening up and sharing with someone else the way that I’m feeling, the struggles I’m facing, as well as my true self without a facade, can sometimes be difficult for the fear of what someone else might think.  Feeling the need to “fit in”, keep up with another’s lifestyle, or copy the way another person leads their life, is something that is socially constructed and robs us of our ability to see the strength in differences and the joy that comes with being yourself and having wholeheartedness.  Being unique and vulnerable, showcasing your talents, fears, passions, culture, and differences, is what makes us all human and we best cultivate our love when these things are on a platform for all to see.  When you think about the risks that come with being vulnerable, whats greater? Learning to let go of what people think? Or letting go of how you feel, what you believe, and who you are, to please another?  I don’t know about you but I would choose to let go of what others think.  It can be hard sometimes, but at the end of the day you already have those close to you who love you unconditionally for the person you are.  Who have seen you at your worst and best and haven’t left and who would continue to move mountains for you.  So why not try to show your true self and allow yourself to be vulnerable with others you’ve just met? Whats the worst that could happen? At the end of the day you can only make a connection with someone if you are being authentic and bringing all of yourself (no matter how different or unique!) to the table.  Sometimes when we are ourselves and share our stories, no matter how difficult, it can inspire one person to get on the right path, to follow their dreams, face their fears, or to take that first small step because they feel that they are no longer alone and can do it.  As Maya Angelou said, “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside of you.”

This blog is a way of me working on my vulnerability as the stories and words I write are all personal and from the heart. I’ve learned to let go of judgement through this and at the end of the day I write, in the hopes that one of you reading this behind your screen can take something away from it and that it can bring inspiration and change to a certain aspect of your life for the better.  I encourage you all to become more vulnerable as it will bring so much more joy and love in to your life.  Inspire others by being yourself. Thanks, Sierra xoxo
