Vulnerabiltiy is more than merely opening oneself up, more than a momentary willingness to lower ones defenses.
Vulnerability is not a technique, not a strategy, not a posture that we afford to those who we deem worthy.
Vulnerability is a commitment, an intentional deeply held conviction, the key to expressing our authenticity.
Vulnerability is an idea, an ideal, a way of living that we gift to ourselves that we might be fully who we were born to be.
Vulnerability is not the capstone, not a lofty vision, not a virtue to be sought, but the bedrock, the foundation on which we embrace what it means to be fully human.
Vulnerability is the lone antidote to the malignancy that is fear, the seemingly acerbic elixir that once swallowed transforms the most emacitated soul into the personification of courage.
