Love Requires Great Risk, But Has Great RewardsVulnerability in love is a scary thing
-- it's a huge risk with unknown results.
But it's absolutely necessary for love.
Being vulnerable in a relationship means revealing our heart and soul. It's having the courage to be ourselves with our partner.
But with that openness comes great risk -- what if we're rejected? ridiculed? our secrets are shared with others?
When we’re vulnerable, we leave ourselves open to being hurt. We don't know how our partner will respond when they see into the very depths of us, when they see all our scars and imperfections.
But being vulnerable with the one we love is absolutely essential for a healthy relationship. If we don't share our soul with our partner, then our relationship will be built on a weak foundation of assumptions and false beliefs, rather than the truth.
When we do share our most intimate parts, our relationship gets built upon a solid foundation of authenticity. We've seen inside each other's souls and love each other in spite of, or because of, what we've seen.
Relationships require a certain amount of risk. If you're in a healthy relationship and want to see it grow and deepen, then make a commitment to be vulnerable with your partner -- starting today. #vulnerability #heartandsoul #kurtstips
