Many people dont think of being vulnerable as being akin to power. Its been my experience that the courage it takes to be vulnerable in a world where a stoic nature (rd: caustic) is considered appropriate (rd: safe) is far more powerful then the face we put on to make others feel comfortable around us.
This “putting-on-a-face” eventually leads to illness in the body. Fully embracing our individual natures, by being willingly vulnerable, is the new fashionable thing to do!
