This video may not be one that many people will agree with and that is ok. I am not looking for recognition, I am not looking for acceptance and I am certainly not looking to create a debate about whether being vulnerable is good, bad or indifferent. I am creating this for the sake of those who are either going through a personal shift or change themselves and it feels uncomfortable OR it is for those who are married to, or concerned for a person who appears to be struggling right now and you don't know what to think, you don't know what to do, and you may not even know what to say. Sometimes listening to understand rather than listening to respond is the BEST thing that you can do for a person who is struggling. Trying to "figure them out" isn't your job...honestly, only we (the person going through this growth moment) can figure ourselves out.
So if you start with an open mind and you put judgement aside, maybe this will have you see things from a different perspective. As I said on an earlier post. By telling someone (or yourself) to "shake it off" or that it is "all in the head" is actually prolonging the healing. This is like telling someone with a broken leg to "shake it off" and walk on the leg. We know that more damage will occur...so by allowing ourselves the chance to be vulnerable through our experiences, not only will we help heal ourselves, we help others who may be struggling to do the same.
