Vulnerability. It is being open to attack. It is the insecurities that you often try to hide from others. It is something that a large majority of people consider a weakness. However vulnerability is becoming known as just the opposite of weakness. Your vulnerabilities are something to value, as how you deal with them is what makes you who you are. Here are some more reasons as to why your vulnerabilities are something to hold value in.
Your insecurities can say a lot about you. Identifying your vulnerabilities can help you find who you are. The way that you choose to deal with said insecurities will also help you be more in tune with who you are, and the way you decide to deal with them can help you become who you want to be.
Respect can be gained from owning up to your vulnerabilities. Not only will you learn to respect yourself for dealing with your own insecurities, but those around you will also take notice to you conquering your fears and vulnerabilities. Someone who is honest with themselves is surely someone to respect, and also someone to look up to.
Vulnerabilities are frequently full of uncertainty. This is why most consider them to be a weakness, because all too often the weaknesses of uncertainty are what hold us back. However embracing your vulnerabilities can open up a whole new world of bravery. By attacking your own vulnerabilities you are stepping out of your comfort zone, and becoming more brave. The more you take that leap, the fewer insecurities you will have, and the more likely you will be to tackle the next big thing.
Leadership is certainly something to value. It is a skill that can be acquired through valuing your vulnerabilities. Not everyone has an easy time being a leader. However one can learn to become a leader by taking their vulnerabilities by the horns, and showing them who’s boss.
Everything mentioned above is all a part of personal growth, which is something that every human should strive for. Without giving your vulnerabilities the value that they deserve you would be doing yourself a disservice. Next time you take notice of a vulnerability, don’t just shove it aside and hope it will go away. Step up and value it for what is really is, a strength, and motivator.
