“Vulnerability is power.” By putting forth all of who one is (their strengths and more particularly their weaknesses, insecurities, shame), all of which can bring them down is removed from their being. Vulnerability connotes a sense of emptiness which as a result prevents an adversary from invading one’s self and extracting something which can harm them. By removing, or rather embracing and utilizing what is self-damaging, their pains and their hurt become strength, they reshape the weapons used against them, the cracks in their foundation, although still revealing their old form, are filled. With a new resolve, healing can begin and a growing empowerment develops. Vulnerability is shame; it is solution, it is regret, it is pain, it is wonder, it is content, it is worry, it is strength. Vulnerability is needed.
