Being Vulnerable, Being Seen

Do you practice being present in each moment?

When is the last time you really looked into someone’s eyes while you spoke to them?

When you are connecting with others, do you allow yourself to be seen?

Vulnerability challenges us; it requires us to trust ourselves and to honor our self-worth, to live in truth.

When we are vulnerable, we can embrace any experience, whether we perceive it as positive or negative. We take it all in, allowing what is.

Commit to being present with those around you. Connect. Stare deeply into their eyes; witness them. Allow yourself to be witnessed. Listen. Even if there is a moment that feels awkward or uncomfortable, stay. Do not abandon this person who you love, who is just like you.

You deserve to see clearly, and to be seen.
