Hey guys! Welcome back. Today I wanted to talk about something that I have struggled with for a really long time. I know that being open and vulnerable is one of the most important aspects of having healthy relationships and a happy life. I know that in order to have the success that I want in my personal life I need to be more vulnerable. But the truth is, that is one of the biggest struggles I have.
I am not a super vulnerable person even though for many years I have tried. It is really difficult for me to always be open and share every little detail of my life because I’m afraid. I have so many insecurities and doubts about what I am doing and how I doing things and it makes me hold back a lot. Being vulnerable isn’t something that is natural for me to do and I’m not the kind of person who just instantly trusts people as soon as I meet them and start talking to them.
I sometimes struggle to know what it is about myself that is the issue. Maybe there are multiple issues at play that cause me to feel the way I do. There are many factors that feed into my insecurities, causing me to resist being vulnerable. Opening up about who I am and what I am going through is something that has been really hard for me. And over the past several months I have made a real effort to be more open here and share more of my personal life and the things I am dealing with. But it still is not easy. There are times when I sit down to share something and I end up not doing it because I am afraid of what will come of it.
One of my biggest fears in life is the fear of rejection. I try to avoid doing or saying things that will be rejected. That causes a lot of strain on me because I am always hiding and staying in my comfort zone. I don’t want to put myself out there too much because I know if I do I risk being rejected and not being accepted. But it is something that I am working on. And when I did my reader survey and there were so many of you who said you wanted to see more personal posts from me it gave me some hope. It showed me that you do care about me and who I am. I have less fear of rejection knowing that you want to get to know me and more about my story.
I do struggle with being vulnerable, not just on here but also in my real life relationships. I am not the most open or talkative person. But it is something that I am working on and that I will continue working on in the future. And if there is anything you would like to see from me in a future post about me please leave it in the comments.
