Vulnerability

I just read another great post from “I Stop For Sufferring”. http://istopforsuffering.wordpress.com/2012/06/01/love-and-vulnerability-3/#comment-2178
This one dealt with love and vulnerability. I highly recommned that you check it out.

I wrote the following as a comment to her post and decided I wanted to share it with you:

I’ve found that when I’ve made myself vulnerable the response I’ve most often received from others is a feeling of trust, connectedness, and courage. Of course, until I started blogging I tended to be somwewhat selective with whom I would allow myself to be vulnerable.

With blogging, I’m vulnerable to anyone who takes the time to read my blog. And what I got when I did so was wave after wave of love, appreciation, kindness, and connectness.

You know, I could get used to this!
