I´ve postponed this moment for quite some time now. The moment when I actually go public, when I stop hiding and caring too much about whether people will judge me negatively. Stopped worrying about not being successful and not making it. The moment when I started caring more about actually giving some value to people, reaching out, sharing things.
And then I figured, that this is also the moment when things become much more fun. Where I find more drive, motivation and energy. More happiness, fulfillment, ideas. It´s only when you become vulnerable that you can bring out the best in you.
I tell this often to people who want to appear tough. Yes, by being tough you will protect yourself from a degree of negative emotions. But you will also block the positive ones. By being vulnerable you open yourself to everything, the good and the bad, and all the shades in between. It rocks. You can feel and experience much more. And connect with more people and the deepest parts of yourself. And then share without your inner censor troubling you.
Allow yourself to be a bit more vulnerable,
