“We're never so vulnerable than when we trust someone - but paradoxically, if we cannot trust, neither can we find love or joy.”

    you lost me at paradoxically ;)


  • haha! oh carolyn, you funny girl. :P

  • Wonderful post as always. Because of a past break up, i have become cold and i rarely am vulnerable to people, even if i want to be. I built walls up to protect me from everyone, i can't even go through. I have to constantly remind myself of who vulnerability is not a sign of weakness, but strength because you know that being vulnerable brings you more blessings than not being able to enjoy life fully at all.

  • ashley, i know how you feel. when i had this awful break up, i hardened my heart and it took forever for me to fully give my heart to someone again. i never allowed myself to be vulnerable with people, because i've always wanted to protect my heart. it took a lot of assurance and affection before i could open my heart again, which has made me much happier now, though sometimes i'm still guarded. sometimes.

    i think that the quote sums it up perfectly, albeit, trusting someone comes with great risks. it's tough that way, but i really do hope that we will be able to fully soften our heart to the one whom God has intended to take care of it. here's to us, and vulnerability!
