Do you consider vulnerability a weakness? I do not. I believe it takes strength, courage and confidence to let yourself be vulnerable.

In my opinion, relationships require full exposure of my being, which requires vulnerability. This is a risk, because I have both positive and negative qualities, just as everyone else. However, it is necessary for me to expose myself, if I want honest relationships.

As an artist, I am vulnerable as well, since I am exposing a part of my being with every piece I make. Art is a way for me to communicate my inner thoughts and feelings in various manners. That is why it takes courage to show my work and why rejections can be so personal.

Working with Gifted and Talented students, I also find myself being vulnerable. Although I have a solid education, a plethora of experience, an excellent reputation, I am the first to admit that I don't have answers to all the questions they make. They respect my vulnerability, as they become aware that we all have academic strengths and weaknesses. (Note - I do help them research answers whenever possible.)
So, what do you think of vulnerability? I'd love to hear your opinion. Thank you for your visit and blessings!
