Be Vulnerable

Be vulnerable!! There is no real connection without vulnerability!!! Connection is why we’re all here. It’s how we’re wired. It’s what fuels our daily lives. GO BRENE!!


Once a couple was asked
how they managed
to stay married
for 65 years
their response
was quite unique
they said that “we lived in a time where if something was broken we would fix it and not throw it away”
and we find that
some people treat relationships
like video games
first of all
they start by playing them
then when they get bored
they quit
I believe we always give advice
that we need to take
and doesn’t it always seem
that everyone has
the best guidance
for us
we receive advice
from our friends
we analyze
and observe
relationships on television
and in real life
we dream about
what it would be like
to love as they do
in the movies
love is promised
on countless dating sites
every year
you can count on
a song by taylor swift
about a love story
where everything has changed
but its still sweeter
than fiction
and you’re still in love
they say
when you’re happy
you enjoy the music
when you’re sad
you understand the lyrics
see the challenge is
we’re meant to love people
and use things
but today
we use people
and love things
the way we communicate
says it all
we spend more time
holding our phones
than we hold each other
we ask google
more questions
than we ask
each other
a lot of problems
in the world
would disappear
if we stopped
talking about each other
and started talking
to each other
if we didn’t
just share our issues
with everyone
but talked one on one
then we could
strike up a connection
strike up a discussion
a dialogue
that helps us
solve the unsolvable problems
the challenges
that were dealing with
on a daily basis
when your young
you say I love you
because I need you
when you grow up
you realize
I need you
because I love you
this is what happens
when two people
who understand themselves
come together
they are actually
able to enhance
each others potential
relationships are not
about compromises
they’re actually about
the other person
to achieve their goals
helping them grow
to become the individual
they deserve to become
that they can become
therefore its not
about our selfish motives
its not about
what we want
are not about us
what usually happens
is two people
come together
to complete each other
they come together
and they depend
on each other
this dependence
leads to a drain
this drain leads
to more pain
and insight into
what it feels like
to constantly have someone
who depends on you
for everything
that starts to create
a barrier
a bitterness
between the
two individuals
where actually one
starts to feel
that they’re
actually carrying
the other person
the whole way through
that’s why we all
need to find someone
who makes us want to
change our life
not just our relationship status
finding someone
who makes us
want to be
at our best
finding someone
who makes us
question how we act
and behave
someone who makes us
think about or widest possibilities
someone who thinks about
our greatest goals
and dreams
someone who
inspires you
to make a difference
in your life
and the lives of others

Be Vulnerable…
