So I am again contemplating the vast amount of courage it takes to allow yourself to be vulnerable. What risk… what pain might follow? Human beings are meant to connect and share lives, yet many times we create chaos in our already frenetic world as we struggle to be understood and loved just as we are. I understand the importance of believing in yourself, and yet there is this pull to ultimately be understood and accepted by others for your unique perceptions and beliefs. It is a cruel fate that we seem to have an innate need for deep meaningful connection and understanding, yet we must also accept the fact that no one will fully understand you, except you!
