VULNERABILITY

A man’s masculinity is always under scrutiny, and we have ourselves to blame for that. But let me tell you this, a man being open about his emotions doesn’t equate to weakness. Vulnerability is a strength not a weakness, the problem is a lot of people who are given access to our vulnerability are backstabbing predators. But don’t let this discourage you. Just be mindful next time.

I understand that we have normalised vulnerability to be a symbol of weakness, but being vulnerable helps us work through our emotions rather than pushing them away. It helps us understand ourselves better but be careful of the company you keep, because even your closest ones could be predators.

They hunt after you, they see your vulnerability as their prey, and if they get to you then they put a halt to your personal growth. Since vulnerability’s been normalised to mean weakness, people like us who believe that vulnerability is a strength understands that vulnerability is a sign of COURAGE.
