On Becoming Vulnerable

I attended a lecture on Friday where the speaker got very real and shared his struggles with anxiety, depression, and worry. His talk was mostly anecdotal, but it still connected with pretty much the whole room. It reminded me of how powerful it can be to show that vulnerable side of yourself.

I like the fact that being positive comes natural to me, but I’ve noticed the times where you become the closest to other people are during shared times of hardship and challenge, or when opening up about anxieties and other low points. Vulnerability can be a gift, not always a comfortable one.
