Let’s dig into Lesson #8 from the list of 10 lessons I’ve learned so far in my 30s. Lessons 1 – 7 are linked below for you to read first. Tough lessons, but nonetheless, valuable beyond measure.
And now, Lesson #8: Learning it’s okay to be vulnerable with others.
This whole blog is a practice in being vulnerable with others, and it wasn’t easy at first – but, I decided to just be myself, share my journey, and let it be. I’ve written so much about being vulnerable, what it means to me, and how difficult it’s been for me throughout my life. I don’t know if there was something special about hitting 30 or what, but it seemed to be the magical time in which I dropped my guard and began learning that it’s okay to allow myself to be vulnerable.
I think that’s such a key word: ALLOW.
