Why is it that we don't talk about the hard stuff in life until after we are healed? Why is it that we don't share the hard truths while in the midst of heartache or despair? And why is it then, that we do not share our most vulnerable moments with one another while we are in those moments of raw emotion?
Once upon a time, I would have been the woman to keep everything behind closed doors and not share my private life with anyone because that's what I was taught; my private life was, well, private. It was not until many years later I realized that not only was it ok to share certain 'off limit' pieces of my life with others, it was absolutely necessary.
As women close, intimate relationships and connections are vital for our journey through womanhood. We must find our 'tribe'. We must find other women with whom we bond and can foster close relationships with.
It's ok to share. It's ok to be open. It's ok to be vulnerable.
Do you have anyone in your life that you can be open and vulnerable with? If so, who are they? If not, what is holding you back from connecting on a deeper level with other women? We need one another to love and embrace us, to support us and to build us up. We are powerful and we are strong but we can not do it alone.
Who in your life do you go to confide in and lean on for support?
