Brave Enough to be Vulnerable — 4 Comments

  1. Denise, this is so accurate and timely. With your permission, I’d like to copy and share this with the many wounded, vulnerable people my professional life connects me with. Thanks for sharing your amazing insights and connecting us with great resources! P.J.

    • Hi Paula,
      I am honored you would like to share this post. It truly does feel like a key for so many of us right now. Thank you again and always for your feedback!
      Much love and light,
      Denise

  2. Hello, Denise! This is, as usual, a wonderful post. This bit, here, got me right between the eyes “In making a choice to lower the emotional drawbridge, you must be willing to accept that the person you open our heart to is not responsible for meeting your needs or even validating potential disappointment.”

    And, still, we must risk speaking our truth.

    I’ve got a situation right now where someone in great need is asking for more than I can give. I say “no, sorry, I cannot” and she asks for something else.

    Hard to straddle both sides when we’re battling that old shame-demon. While she has the right to ask, I have the duty to my whole Self to say no…”meaning what I say, saying what I mean, without saying it mean.”

    I’m practicing non-judgement while being vulnerable, getting there, slowly but surely. She’s a good teacher for me.

    Thank you, again, for your posts…so generous, so loving.

    • Hi Haley,
      It seems so many of us are in situations that are requiring renewed and stronger boundaries as we speak our truth. It’s big work! Thank you for your feedback but also for the wonderful reminder to recognize the teacher. Hope you and those you love are well!
      Much love and light,
      Denise
