When you’re said to be vulnerable, you’re automatically put at a disadvantage. It says it right there; you’re susceptible to harm, physical or emotional.
But is being vulnerable such a negative thing? I don’t know. I think being vulnerable has its benefits. Only when you open yourself up to someone, only when you put yourself in a position of possibly being hurt by another being can you find out more about yourself. Once you are actually hurt by anothe person, you are given the chance to work on yourself. Figure out what happened and where things went wrong. When you allow yourself to be true to someone by opening up, you can pave the path to something beautiful. Even if it all goes to sh*t, somehow, in the end, you will find yourself as a better person than who you began as.
