Recognising Openness and Vulnerability as a Gift.
28 Days of Gratitude – Day 10
I forgive myself for not being able to successfully put into words how I was feeling yesterday. I am grateful for shadow work. I am thankful that I carry the ability to be vulnerable and feel through my emotions. Not everyone in this world is so open to this.
I used to see my openness and vulnerability as something bad. Some have suggested that these qualities make me weak.
My perception is that I have been pushed down 10 rungs and rejected so fricken many times. These moments have become like water off a duck’s back. What I have learned is that self-love, self-care, and self-acceptance are much more powerful than another person’s projected perception of me.
I have accepted that some seek to manipulate, control, or shut the other person down. I have observed as many have used my openness and vulnerability against me as a weapon.
Because I now see it for what it is, I see right through the illusions that are created by others.
It is only through consciousness that I have been able to successfully deactivate this weapon. To combine a design of openness and vulnerability, with consciousness, opens the door to many beautiful possibilities.
Nobody but me can shut the door to my own consciousness. I used to believe other people when they would suggest that my openness and vulnerability were my greatest flaws. What I have since realised is that these things will forever be my greatest gift.
Be mindful of what you take on as your own. Another person's judgement of you only becomes yours at the point you accept it as your judgement.
