Vulnerability is Strength



Whether in business or personal relationships; we are taught early on to mask our feelings. Never let them see you sweat. –Is the mantra and credo that we all adhere to in our daily lives. You would never reveal your true displeasure in the boardroom. When you see something that is morally opposed to all you believe in you say nothing.

I talk to my friends all the time about what’s really going on with them. Not the polite chit-chatter that we know by rote, but the inertia that is real life. Most stuff isn’t pretty and you can’t wrap it in a pretty box. It’s funny what people will tell you if you’re just willing to listen. I’ve heard some stories that will break your heart and others that made me laugh. Not because they were so funny, but the absurdity was so much that it was better to laugh than cry.

We go through life with blinders on pretending not to notice those who are hurting. How many times have you turned a blind-eye to those who were right in front of you? I’m not talking about the beggar on the street. I’m talking about that person in your home, on your job. The person that keeps calling and reaching out to you and you pretend not to notice.

It’s nice to be nice, but fake is fake. We all have become pretentious in our lives. I won’t show my dirt and you won’t bother me with yours. I’ve done it. I confess. I saw you needing major surgery and I gave you a Band-Aid. I’m treating you like you have a splinter and I can clearly see the gaping wound in front of me.

I’m good at starting the conversation, but now we need answers. There’s got to be someone you can tell your secrets to. People have lost their minds over less. Everyone needs a hero at some point in their lives. Even if they find out that they have to become the hero to save themselves.

I have used my blog and Facebook as a way to reach out. Now I’m asking you to be brave and share your truth with me and countless others. Not so people know your business, but to help you. I may not have the answer, but someone does. People have continually offered their personal insights to those in need. Many have confessed their own issues. Surprisingly, folks have unabashedly said I’ve been there. I know what you’re going through. May not always solve the problem, but it feels so much better to know you’re not alone. When you show your vulnerability it only shows your strength.

Below are some ways to contact me. I will share your story, but I will never reveal your identity.

Blessings, Veela aka Venus
