Do you ever feel tense about wanting to express yourself?
Do you ever hold back comments because you don't want to hurt someone's feelings?
Have you ever spoken up and had a great sense of relief, so much so that a weight literally leaves your body?
I grew up in a household where it wasn't comfortable talking about emotions or taboo subjects or situations that were confusing, painful or difficult - SEX, DRUGS, MONEY, DIVORCE to name a few!
If you answered YES to any of those questions, I can relate. With trust, time, therapy, and wisdom, I have learned to play with vulnerability. It was Brene Brown who enlightened me first about this topic and I am so grateful for her. Check out her blog here. I now practice allowing my voice to be heard and it feels so good. I believe each vulnerable moment we have is a chance to let our true selves shine and in doing so, creates an environment in which we are living that makes us more connected to our soul's purpose. This is a short journey on earth and we can live out our soul's deepest desires! How fun!
We all know life is short. Why not be fully self-expressed in all we are and all we do? There's beauty in that.
