Willing To Be Vulnerable )

Good stuff, as always. especially as I see a number of pals struggling with the idea that *asking* for what they need, or communicating their feelings clearly isn't "imposing" or "rude" or "selfish". I struggle with that one too.

If one is not clear about one's wants or needs or feelings, one has very little chance of seeing them adressed by the people in one's life.

And so often we do this because we feel that we aren't worthy of having them adressed. Or that people will reject us for *daring* to ask for stuff, or for being who we are, rather than who they would have us be. Authenticity can be scary. Vulnerability is all kinds of scary. But by holding back, you deny the people around you the opportunity to choose to meet those needs or not. You've decided *for* them, that they can't or won't, or could never "handle it"...

"better to be hated for what you *are*, than to be loved for what you are *not*."

Letting Your Feelings Flow - Tears )

Shedding tears can sometimes make us feel better, although it can feel like the
tears will never end once the floodgates are open. There is no shame in letting
tears flow freely and frequently. Tears are as natural to us as is breathing.
There is beauty in allowing yourself to be vulnerable enough to shed tears. Open
up, release your tears, and let your feelings flow.

I've been gettting these in my email for a couple of weeks now, and I'd thought I'd share ...

Growth. )

When we are in the midst of a growing period, it is not easy to
see our reward, but it is there, waiting for us to grow big enough to reach it.
