Day 9 of 30 Days of Brave
I AM VULNERABLE
TODAY’S BRAVE ACT
What have I struggled with most during this 30-day challenge?
Trying not to focus too far ahead and staying present. I have always found that hard.
Today, be courageously vulnerable by openly sharing this weakness with a friend.
VULNERABLE: capable of or susceptible to being wounded or hurt.
My insecurities are at the core of what I fear and my sense of unworthiness, yet these vulnerabilities are also the birthplace of my joy, creativity, and love. So I will compassionately embrace my imperfections because feeling so fiercely vulnerable means I am alive. I will let myself be deeply seen and share myself wholeheartedly even though there are no guarantees that things will work out.
To share your weakness is to make yourself vulnerable; to make yourself vulnerable is to show your strength.
In what area of my life are you afraid of being rejected?
In my career. I am putting all my heart and soul into building a new career for myself, yet my grades are not reflecting my effort. I am concerned that with the state of psychology in Australia as the way it is, I am not going to make it.
How have I been limiting myself by avoiding the fear of being rejected?
I haven’t been doing this. I am still going ahead.
TODAY’S JOURNAL PROMPTS
A weakness that I’m struggling with … is that I am still not single-tasking. I am trying to do too much at once. My head is muddled at times. Sometimes I am losing my focus. This weakness shows in my academic writing and in the way I run my household.
Today, I will be courageously vulnerable by sharing my weakness with the following person … not just one person, with everyone following This Melbourne Mum!
“The only way to get our true power back is to be vulnerable.”
