Vulnerability and Boundaries

“Vulnerability is at the core, the heart, the center, of meaningful human experiences. ” ~ Brene Brown

Opening up can be difficult, especially if you’ve been burnt time and time again. Trust me. I get it. Sexually molested as a child. Growing up with an alcoholic, emotionally unavailable mother. Narcissistic boyfriends over and over.

You get burnt enough times, you want to close off. Become a hermit. Disappear.

I get it. And you’re not alone.

Like Danielle LaPorte has said, “Open, gentle heart. Big f*cking fence.” Don’t close off. Know your boundaries. Know YOURSELF.

When you know yourself, being vulnerable and open isn’t has hard as it looks. Start within.
