Why is it so hard to be vulnerable with others?
Oh, I don’t know, because vulnerability is vulnerability?! Because people can hurt you when you let your guard down? Because when you’ve spoken up, people don’t listen? Or instead, they judge you up and down and now you have to bear the weight of their judgment on top of the burdens you’re trying to release?
Why is it so damn hard for people to not hurt each other? Why is it so hard to just be open and let people simply exist in the midst of their pain and glory?
We’re all shut down. And it’s driving me insane.
