Overcoming a Fear of Vulnerability and Love Your Imperfections
Keep reading for FREE
We understand that people that we admire are imperfect, but don't find their flaws unforgivable. Yet, when it comes to ourselves, we beat ourselves up for our own imperfections.
Do not judge yourself more harshly than you judge them.
Building walls create a safe space into which you can quickly retreat, but it also leaves you trapped behind your own emotional defenses, unable to give or receive positive emotions as well as negative ones.
This, in turn, leaves many people feeling isolated and alone.
From a young age, we learn that not everyone is on our side, and not all situations are going to go our way.
Over time, we build walls around our hearts to protect ourselves from these hurts.
The fear of vulnerability is ultimately a fear of rejection or abandonment. To combat it, you must first learn to love and accept yourself with all your flaws, embarrassing stories, past mistakes, insecurities and awkwardness.
Realize that everyone feels like this, regardless of how successful they are.
