Vulnerable is when you feel exposed, unprotected, weak. You know you bruise easily, but you lay it all out anyway. This is you being you. “Please tread lightly,” you whisper. “Handle with care.” Because you have to be brave enough to expose the real you out in the world. You could get hurt, but that is part of the deal. People could reject you, and that is part of the deal too. Allowing yourself to be vulnerable is the only way to true intimacy, because it is the only way to be your authentic self.
(Recipe for Far Breton below! It is a kind of traditional French pudding, and it looks nice when it hasn’t been smashed.)
