So many people struggle with their relationships. For many people, intimacy is a foreign language. And vulnerability? Forget it! Show your partner your weakness, fear, pain, need for love? No way! That’ll make you look pathetic.
Sorry, folks. The opposite is the truth. The only real hope for intimacy is through vulnerability. And the only real hope of having a loving, fulfilling, dynamic relationship is through showing your lover all of you – not just your strength.
The Truth About Vulnerability
In our workshops, Joyce and I teach and invite vulnerability. As each participant becomes vulnerable, he or she becomes more beautiful and attractive to all of us. In addition, each person’s vulnerability opens our hearts to our own vulnerability. This is the truth about vulnerability: when you share your human frailty, you become accessible, more lovable, and you give permission for others to not have to act strong all the time.
