“It takes more courage to reveal insecurities than to hide them, more strength to relate to people than to dominate them, more 'manhood' to abide by thought-out principles rather than blind reflex. Toughness is in the soul and spirit, not in muscles and an immature mind.” Alex Karras
I always thought vulnerbility was a weakness of mine. It seemed to make other people feel uncomfortable until I met a group of friends that encouraged me to keep going. I miss sharing deeply from the soul. No one seems to do that anymore. Its like a lost art. We seem to keep our short comings, failings, skinned knees, and darkness locked up in some closet somewhere. While we get to look great on the outside we are drowning on the inside. I don't understand the idea of stuffing it, pushing it down, DENIAL. Courage is always found in Truth. The Truth is never pretty sometimes its really embarrassing, painful, ugly, but it can set you free. That's the power that the Truth can hold. Everytime I say it like it is, I feel freer, alive, honest, real, human, normal, etc. I am messed up and so is everyone else! LOL Why did we stop putting ourselves out there? Maybe its because I need to put myself out there before someone else can have enough courage to do the same. "Be the change you want to see" as the quote goes. I need to find my courage again and tell my truth.
