The surprising thing about vulnerability is, people don’t go away when they find out who we are.
It’s quite the opposite. Instead of rejecting or abandoning us, they come nearer. Our truth draws them in like a warm fire. And our tender but universal intimacies become a platform for deep connection.
Train has a great song about this universal emotional experience.
These bruises make for better conversation, loses the vibe that separates, good to let you in again, you’re not alone in how you’ve been. Everybody loses, we all got bruises.
Are you willing to share yours? Even the parts of yourself that might need some work?
Don’t worry. No need to lift up your shirt for strangers. The goal here is putting a priority on speaking your microscopic truth. Actually expressing your internal experience as you are currently perceiving it, as often as you can.
The simplest approach is giving data about what sensations we’re feeling in the moment. The pang in our stomach, the heating up of our face, the goosebumps on our skin, these simple expressions are single serving, low threat, easy places to start.
And with some practice, will pave the way for more vulnerable expressions like deep feelings, strong emotions, personal failures and other profound experiences.
Proving to us that intimacy truly means, into me I see.
LET ME ASK YA THIS…
Are you putting a priority on speaking your microscopic truth?
