Okay – I’ll admit it. I hate being vulnerable. I understand that vulnerability is an important concept, and I am willing to embrace it – but that does not mean that I like it. When I am being vulnerable – open to the world – and someone says or does something that hurts, it doesn’t matter if they do it with the intention to hurt me or not. It still hurts. And I know that I prefer to live in a world where people are open and willing to be vulnerable – and so I embrace vulnerability. But please be gentle with me!
