Vulnerability becomes a source of strength. It doesn’t mean you’re a wimp or a pushover. There is this place in me where I’m going to choose to open. I’d rather get hurt and open, than stay closed and clever and distant and removed. If you’re going to enter into a deep relationship, you have to be prepared to get really hurt. To get really close to another person is to bear yourself, right down to your very core.
