“I define vulnerability as uncertainty, risk, and emotional exposure. Showing up and being seen when there are no guarantees. 

With that definition in mind, let’s think about love.

Waking up every day and loving someone who may or may not love us back, whose safety we can’t ensure, who may stay in our lives or may leave without a moment’s notice, who may be loyal to the day they die or betray us tomorrow- that’s vulnerability.

Love is uncertain. It’s incredibly risky. And loving someone leaves us emotionally exposed.

Yes, it’s scary, and yes, we’re open to being hurt, but can you imagine your life without loving or being loved?”

– Brené Brown
