To live in vulnerability can sometimes seem too much, too overwhelming. You want to take the ‘easy’ option, to desensitize yourself once more, to retreat back into ignore-ance. But what happens then? You start to feel frustrated, closed down, unexpressed; longing for something more; longing to come alive. Break the cycle! Make insecurity your dearest friend, not-knowing your bedfellow. Fall in love with the rawness of life. That’s where true aliveness resides. That’s where all the real magic happens.
