Humans learn through patterns, and through a pattern that has taken shape in the form of the most consistent love I have ever come to know I have found myself in a beautiful place of connection --- a place where my true humanity is exposed without any need for my self taught defences to conceal but rather see my defences diminished, compromised and no longer needed to exist --- a place of complete exposure yet wrapped in perfect love. 

Yes it’s true, vulnerability doesn’t transcend over night -- but I believe we have the power (& choice) to live in a beautiful space where vulnerability is present even in unsafe territory. I don’t think we were created to be emotionally and spiritually locked up. Wisdom is surely needed to dicipher where vulnerability flows but I’ll call it disloyalty to our nature if we wait for safety to allow our hearts to truly be exposed. What a comfortable existence if we never allow our hearts to truly explore risk.
