Love comes… when you dare to reveal yourself fully. When you dare to be vulnerable.

Joyce Brothers

We’re often told that love comes when we least expect it, but the truth is, love comes when we are completely open. As humans, we crave more than anything to be fully known and loved for who we are, but if we conceal the imperfect parts of ourselves or keep our guard up for fear of getting hurt, we can never be wholly understood by the people in our lives. True emotional vulnerability is one of the most difficult things to achieve in life, but if we’re willing to take the risk, we’re rewarded with love, community, and the joy of finding kindred spirits in the world.
