It is the state of being exposed to the possibility of being attacked or harmed, either physically or emotionally.
We don't like to be vulnerable because we can more easily get hurt. But we want to have a quality life, and that includes having good relationships with people we trust and love.
When you share your vulnerability with someone, and that person cares about your vulnerability, that is the person to go with.
By risking getting hurt, we often find we create more meaningful interactions that increase our ability to be resilient.
