Dr. DeFoore's Healing Anger Newsletter entitled "The Power Of Vulnerability"
June 15, 2017
The Power Of Vulnerability
"Your greatest strength is in knowing yourself well enough to be vulnerable in a powerful way."
Self-awareness is the first component of emotional intelligence, and it's also the first step to reach the goals we're talking about here.
Now let's take a look at how you can get to know yourself better, and use your self-awareness to be both vulnerable and strong at the same time.
One of the best ways to create strength and vulnerability in your life is with support and encouragement from others. That's why we created the Goodfinding Community Online page.
Here are some specifics on how to be strong and vulnerable, on your own and in your relationships.
No matter how big and strong you may seem, or how scary you are when you're angry, that kind of strength will leave you alone and unhappy. Anger and aggression push people away, and they come from fear.
What we all want most is to love and be loved, and that requires that we know how to express our more intimate emotions, that draw others closer instead of pushing them away.
Here are the steps you can take:
Remember, being vulnerable is being honest. Pretending you feel something, while hiding other feelings, is just not as honest as being able to talk openly about your emotions.
Keep in mind that healthy vulnerability has nothing to do with making "you" statements about other people, where you're analyzing, criticising or judging another person. It's all about making "I" statements, such as "I feel sad/scared when..." or "I feel closest to you when..."
You are speaking from your heart, talking about your love, your deep emotions, and your desire for strong loving connection.
