Maybe you’ve heard about the benefits of being vulnerable already. Maybe you haven’t. One thing we can agree on…is that it sucks. I, for one, am still in my beginning stages of learning to be more vulnerable in my life so it’s not one of my favorites. Being out of control also isn’t one of my favorites.
Seeing as I struggle with vulnerability too, I did some research and came across an article by theeverygirl.com who dove into this topic.
Theeverygirl goes onto talk about how a lot of times, we hold ourselves back, or we don’t do the thing we wanted to do because we are afraid of the outcome or how people will react to whatever we are doing. I agree with this 100%. There have been so many instances I let a really good idea fly by out of fear and then see someone else barrel into what I wanted to do with ease and success. Here’s some of her tips on tip toeing into your vulnerable strength through the metaphorical wall we are calling “fear”.
Too much too soon will lead to anxiety and that is not the funnest playground.
Believing your story is worth
By not sharing, you are literally sabotaging your opportunity to connect.
Know your triggers
Those moments you have a quick relapse in your courage? Dissect those and get to the root of the problem so you can overcome it.
Surround yourself with a supportive community
This is exactly my goal with my private boudoir group BOUDIE TALK TRIBE. The goal of this all female community is to fan the flames of our fellow woman and provide a safe environment to learn to love ourselves. I’d love to count you among our tribe.
Allow yourself to be OK with poor outcomes
Not everything is going to work out as planned and that is OK.
