I want to retain my vulnerability. Being vulnerable is part of who I am; it helps to make me ME. Being vulnerable allows me to feel everything more deeply. That means I feel pain – both my own and other’s – deeply. But I also am able to experience the joy and other good feelings more vibrantly. I wouldn’t give up the pain because it would mean also giving up the joy. That is not a trade-off I am willing to make. How about you? Are you willing to feel the lows so that you can truly feel the highs?
