“The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.” ― Coco Chanel

Vulnerability is something that has never come easy to me. Finding the balance between looking weak or strong, desperate or self-reliant, crazy or collected is an unfavorable battle in my mind when debating to be vulnerable.

Because vulnerability is not second nature to me I continually have to be conscious of showing up in moments and allowing myself to feel fully and express candidly. In moments of what feels like vulnerability I find myself questioning if I am offering my genuine-self or if I am still trying to protect my ego, my sensitivity. When did I start censoring and stop sharing?  Even with all my efforts to be vulnerable it doesn't always feel courageous or freeing, sometimes it feels more like shambles of defeat or second-guessing, did I share too much or did I not share enough? It usually being the latter.

I am still working to find my confidence with being vulnerable in hopes to connect with others, connect with myself, and gain a new perspective. It's rarely perfect or works out the way I think it should but sometimes you just have to start somewhere in hopes of acknowledging your inner voice.
