Don’t be strong. Be weak. Unclench your fists. Dare to be vulnerable. Honest weakness takes courage ~ Pete Greig

Admitting to weakness and vulnerability isn’t something many of us like to do, is it. That’s probably why when we go through difficult situations, we often experience symptoms such as insomnia, memory loss, weakness and vulnerability.

Telling someone not to be strong but to show their weakness, isn’t going to instantly make them share their weaknesses, and show how vulnerable they are. Instead they need to feel safe, they need to feel loved, so give them a hug, so that when they show their vulnerability they will not feel they are being judged but are safe.

So whether you are feeling vulnerable or know someone who is struggling, do what you need to do to dare to be vulnerable.
