In the past and even today when I’ve been emotionally vulnerable, there have been varying degrees, levels or area’s I’ve allowed myself to be vulnerable about.
There are only certain people I’ve allow at the very core of my self perceived vulnerabilities and insecurities. Only a few people I’ve allowed myself to feel free around.
In my expression of myself, my lessons and my experiences here on the blog I’ve allowed myself to wade into the pool of vulnerability.
As of late I’m pretty much up to my neck in vulnerability on here.
Why? Because I enjoy living the “F” word.
Every time I have shared my message, along with my vulnerabilities, I have been embraced, supported and encouraged. Quite the opposite of what I may have expected in the way of judgments and the squinting eyes of others. But I said fuck it and did it anyway. I was free before I ever shared the first post.
In the beginning of being so transparent it’s been like walking around public nude. It could be pretty uncomfortable, but it’s only because no one else is doing it. (And no I don’t walk around naked in public but if I did, I’m betting that’s what it would be like)
Truth: Most of what I share here comes pretty naturally. At the same time much of it scares the shit out of me.
Once I started it though It’s become almost an addiction unto itself. I almost don’t feel right these days if I’m not on the cutting edge and sharing my stuff. Selfishly I’ve come to understand there are gifts in sharing my lessons. Mostly for me but alot for you. I’ll admit, sometimes I wonder if my efforts really matter at all.
Will what I share here have any long lasting impact on anyone or anything?
Probably, but let’s see.
The Naked Test
When it comes to being transparent in the context of human emotion you are either transparent or you are hiding facets of your emotional self. You’re not really living free of you’re own judgments.
There are no varying degrees of being truthful. You either are or you aren’t. Pretty much like plastic saran wrap. It’s not saran wrap if you can’t see through it. How much energy are you using up if you’re not expressing who you really are. Glitches, zits and all.
There’s no in between. And if there is, you’re using precious energy to hide the zits and glitches. Probably lots of energy.
Living transparently only happens when all of your truth is naked and yes, that’s the fucking scary part.
How do you get there?
- Peeling back
Just so you know, it’s one of the most liberating things you can ever imagine when you share something that you’ve hidden in your mental shadows.
What are the benefits?
- A more clear conscious
- More energy
- More creativity
- A more open heart
- More love for yourself
- Deeper relationships (with everyone)
My question to you is this:
What are you willing to share in the comments section today that you probably would never had shared before?
I’m risking alot here today (as I usually do) because I’m betting one of two things:
- This will be one of the loneliest comments section on the blog ever
- Or it will be one of the most liberating and beneficial posts to you ever. Like an amazing community of nakedness. (Not literally of course)
Start with something small or anything that you’ve had on your mind and you just want to dump it on the ground. Get rid of it.
Look at it this way. If you’re wearing a full set of armor you may want to start with taking off the helmet. 😉 But if you’re only wearing a t-shirt and jeans consider the flip flops first. There are varying degrees of nakedness for everyone depending on how much stuff they are wearing.
There are no judgments only the ones you’ve decided to wear. I know because I’ve done the most exposing as I stand here naked before you in these pages & posts.
The goal is to get to the core of who we are and not apologize for it. To live in emotional freedom. It’s amazing and liberating. We were born to be this way, but programmed to think otherwise.
So let’s see how much nakedness happens in the comments section below, if any.
