Vulnerability

A place I’m currently exploring.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The place where we hide all the most precious parts of ourselves we want to keep safe.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It’s also a deeper exploration of my strength. Out of a need to survive, my strength has always been fierce. Born out of fear, it started suffocating the very aspects of myself I was trying to protect. Closing off my heart. Hiding my truth. Disconnecting me from the life I want.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

And so out of a choice to thrive and not just survive, I’ve cracked myself wide open and started exploring the parts of myself I’ve kept safe for so long. So safe, for so long, that I almost forgot they were there.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

And I now realise this is how my strength can rather come from love and transmute into my power. And from here anything is possible.
