Oftentimes, vulnerability is seen as a weakness but as long as I remember, vulnerability has been a tool that helps me get closer to people. Opening up isn’t a flaw. It’s a strength because there’s no better way to form connections with people than to discuss personal feelings and experiences. Not only does it give others a better understanding of your own character, but it shows that we are all the same. While we all look different and come from different backgrounds, we all share the same feelings. We all have good days and bad.
I’ve always been proud of the fact that I can read people well and in turn, share experiences that both of us can relate to. Whether these experiences are positive or negative, it’s always fun to speak to someone who understands. It’s never been a better time than now to share how we feel and what we’ve been through. You never know who will relate to you or what friend you’ll make, so step out of your comfort zone! Say hello to that stranger or call that new friend you have. It’ll be worth it, I promise.
