Being vulnerable with somebody is a gift to them. If you want to love someone, be vulnerable with them. Open yourself to fully expose your pain and weakness, show your tender heart, and allow them full room to show theirs. Be completely present with them, just as you are and just as they are, without any need for protection or judgment. That is in fact giving them something precious. But what’s more, being vulnerable with somebody else also conveys a gift to yourself as well. For vulnerability is a wide road to love, and love is what you were born for.
