  2. thanks jon :)


    so, what do we do? not be vulnerable?

    too real.

    i’m afraid i truly believe that vulnerability is the only way. that’s not to say we should never defend ourselves, but that we should allow people to know us for who we truly are. without relationship, what’s the point? there really isn’t one so far as i can see. vulnerability can be the most painful yet also the most precious thing. i guess we have to exercise wisdom as to how much of ourselves we give and to whom, but i feel very often we’re afraid to make a start for fear of, above all things, rejection.

    Vulnerability scares people. It makes them aware of their own vulnerability and sometimes they are so scared by that that they crush or silence you. If it involves past abuse that they’ve repressed then their response can be quite pathological. The important thing to remember is that how they respond is about them, not you. Truth is never damaging, only the covering up of truth.

    Thus sayeth The Tigster. :-)
