Vulnerability is Vivacious

Society has Conditioned Us to Think Being Emotional is Bad

I have shown my truth a lot in life. The good times, the really, brutally bad times and everything in between.

Vulnerability is a scary situation though, it puts you in a place where people can harm, take advantage and gossip about you, but in the end, I truly believe being vulnerable makes you into a better person.

I had a really difficult situation, where I was vulnerable with someone and it bit me in the ass.

Why?

I do not go out to intentionally harm others and if I do, I do try to repair said harms.

Being malicious and masking it as ‘helping’ is unbelievable.

Some people spend all of their time trying to force others to change because it does not allow them a single moment to look inwards, at all the things within themselves which need changing.

I have realized that individuals, who do not know what I am going through, will see me smiling, seemingly content with my life, and it angers them.

Remember, that anyone who is hurting you, is hurting much more than you are.

I am not looking to blame anyone; I know that I am part of the problem, period.

The best test of character is how one speaks about someone they dislike because how someone speaks of a person they do not like shows you a very clear picture of their true self.

I know that there are two sides to every story and no matter how righteous I may feel, it is simply that, my feelings.

I think people who intentionally try to hurt me, think that they are giving me what I deserve and that it will make we cower, but it won’t.

Your vulnerability might bring out some ugly truths, which have been living deep within you, but do not be afraid to be emotional. A strong person is not the always the stoic person, but the person brave enough to cry, scream and breakdown, to release a much needed break through.

Society has taught us that not being in control of your emotions, at all times, makes you weak or unhinged, but it is the opposite.

I write about issues that are near and dear to my heart, with the hope that my stories, experiences, and struggles may empower others: amanlitt.ca
