Do you ever wonder why we #crave the presence of certain people?
Just being in the presence of some people can make our days so much better. Why do we feel like we must be understood so deeply and connect with others?
I was pretty convinced that I would never long for these 'feelings' again. But alas this human condition😏😁 Fucks with my feelers.
I want to have a deep connection with someone regardless of the potential downside of people generally breaking trust, and hurting others intentionally, or unintentionally.
💯It's worth it to me. I understand the risk associated, and yet I still am longing for the presence of certain people.
✨Given all the problems love can create, why do we keep longing for it? How many thousands of years will it take for us to learn? How many Romeos and Juliets need to lie dead on the floor before we’re willing to give up this perverse addiction?
Oh, I know they weren’t real, but then again, is love? If evolution is our preferred understanding of the human story, why can’t we evolve ourselves out of this primal Achilles’ heel we know as love?
And don’t give me this thing about the propagation of the species. Love isn’t necessary for reproduction – just sex is.
👉All you need is attraction, not emotion…If intimacy is only about attraction, we could just keep lust and dispense with love. But it just won’t go away. – Erwin McManus
When I first read this, I stopped and went through it again. And then a third time. Yeah. Why do we crave love? Why do I want to be known so deeply, to know someone and trust them and be trustworthy?
It is not enough for me to be kind of cool, or for me to have had a moment or two of meaningful connection. I want it to go on.
👉I stress over relational disharmony, I crave connection – not just a physical connection, but a deep emotional bond of being known and being wanted.
All of us long to become something more than we are. We are driven to achieve, moved to accomplish, fueled by ambition.
It burns hotter in some than in others, but it is within all of us 🔥
facts: male body-image dissatisfaction has tripled in the last 25 years, from 15% of the population to 45%. | which makes me wonder, if majority of humans struggle w body image bullshit, why are we so harsh on each other?.. | #bodyimageseries
So often we hide “difficult” emotions because we believe that to feel them, let alone express them, is weak. Yet it’s fear, shame, regret, grief, etc. that have the greatest impact on our physical and mental health. It’s essential we take off our emotional masks and honestly own what we are feeling. Not only does accepting that we all experience darker places and spaces in our being alleviate how much they impact our ability to love, work and lead, practicing emotional exposure gives birth to the joy, courage, creativity, authenticity, and so much more that we long for to define our lives. Emotions, all emotions, are of God and signposts to a holistic and whole life. Cont. in comments...
I've been forced to take a view from the looking glass at vulnerability.
Showing parts of myself to people that I thought I was doing but not on a level they've bought out in me recently.
It's bought about deep acceptance of who I am and that it's more than ok to show that.
We build walls to protect us and these very walls stop us from truly enjoying life!
Allowing your vulnerable self is beautiful and powerful all at the same time.
We can only overcome our fears when we let our guards down and once we do, amazing parts of us are shown.
Allow yourself to be seen in your beautiful colours!
Shine on beauties ❤️. Www.spiritualrebel.co.uk. #spiritualcoach#psychic#healer#love#vulnerability#showyourself#betruetoyou#acceptance#selflove#happiness#workwithme#overcome
I'm not afraid to show someone my true self, however there was always that last piece that I would hide, u know what I'm talking about, those week moments, those moments when ur not put together, those parenting moments when u don't know wtf to do cause there's no manual... except, where was it getting me hiding those moments? 🤔 the ones where God would put the right person to assist me or deliver the words I required... nowhere... that's where... until I realized that vulnerability is not a weakness but in fact a strength... it allows me to fully receive, it allows me to fully experience, it allows me to fully give... it allows me to connect... ask urself this, will u give urself permission to b 100% vulnerable? Don't half commit, like oh I'll post 1 pic without makeup... I call BS and the only one ur BSing is urself... if u want true fulfillment in this world, become no holds barred vulnerable... #godsgreatestgift#vulnerability#vulnerable#receive#give#connect#dontbullshit#weakness#fulfillment#becomemorefulfilled#openup#whocareswhattheythink#beyourself
Something I highly value in myself and other people, is honesty. Being authentic, being raw and vulnerable, and staying true to who you are.
My soul purpose for my instagram account is to inspire others to make the most of their lives. It's as simple as that. I do this by sharing what I'm passionate about, my health and food, what I'm grateful for, my struggles/setbacks, thoughts/plans, quotes/affirmations, achievements, stories, ect.
2 years ago, I had a huge wake up call in my life after I hit, what I would consider, "rock bottom". I refer to that year as the worst year of my life, and the best. It's ironic how sometimes it takes your entire world to being shaken up to wake you up and realise something needs to change- and your the only person who has the power to make it happen. 🤔
I have spent the last few years, focusing on myself. I have invested and dedicated my time to growing as a person. And I am constantly learning, evolving, and growing every single day. I have spent these years overcoming my fears, getting outside of my comfort zone, opening up and being vulnerable, following my heart, loving myself and who I am as a person, living my life how I want to live it- not how others want me to live it, living a life full of lessons not regrets, forgiving others/letting go, acceptance, living in the present, and staying true to who I am, my values, and living an authentic and passionate life 💕🙌✨
Yes. Do. Run wild for your heart. But...know that not everyone is going to be on board with you being all wild, happy and free. On this coaching adventure, I've come up against some challenges and I've needed to refocus and come back to my heart to re-evaluate many times. I've had push back and resistance from some who know my heart the best...and I've had to be aware and respond with love. Coaching and standing strong for my mental and physical balance is my PASSION. It has given me chance to shine and lead and inspire. So...I keep responding to and revisiting my heart. I keep checking in on my people and how my choices affect their world...and I keep coming back to the fact that becoming a coach has brought more positive to my life than I ever could have imagined. So I keep going. ❤️ #listentoyourheart#runfree#passion#momprenuer#workingmom#boundaries#vulnerability#honestmotherhood#womensupportingwomen#leadership#postivevibes#coaching#lifegoals#mindandbodybalance
Why can’t we admit that we’re perfectly imperfect? Our imperfections make us human, unique and relatable.
I know you’re not going to believe this, but I am far from perfect 😏. I can be controlling, stubborn, I work on managing roots of rejection, being out of debt and I'm obsessed with a few hairs on my chin.
Life is life, it will never be perfect. But exposing your true imperfect self opens you up to a world of deeper, meaningful, and supportive relationships.
Most of us can tell when we’re in the presence of an authentic human being, one who isn’t “putting on a show,” they are just true to their humanness. This comfort is felt because in their presence we can sense our own authenticity and we sense the deep peace this authenticity brings. #authentic#authentic#vulnerability#mask#peace#relationships#empowerment
Everyone struggles. And for me it's hard to admit when I am struggling, always has been. 👉🏼This school year has been very rough for me mentally. The students in my class challenge me to my core daily and many times I am feeling I am not doing enough for them and at the same time not enough for myself. It's a balancing act of giving them what they need and allowing myself not to get burnt out. 👉🏼 I've studied to become a teacher since I was in high school and here I am LOST of what to do. That's hard to swallow.
Trying to remember : ✨Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength ✨
Even sharing this post is stressing me out because sharing that I am lost and don't know what to do 👉🏼 terrifies me but I also know that to grow I need to let go, be vulnerable, and share more about what I'm dealing with. Thanks in advance. 💕
Any other teachers out there feeling the struggle right about now?
Why is it that we love to see raw truth and openness in other people, but we are so afraid to let them see it in us?
We want to experience other peoples vulnerability but we don't want to be vulnerable.
why do we believe that vulnerability looks like courage in others but it's inadequacy in us? 🌿🌿🌿
we are drawn to other people's vulnerability but we are repelled by our own.
today, sweet friend, I want to invite you to have the courage to show up and be seen! To me, vulnerability is telling the truth with courage. About who we are. So do that today. Courageously tell your story! I'm cheering for you 💖😘🌸 #daringgirlsrock
I think this is true. I can choose to make myself suffer and be a negative Nancy all the time or I can work on bettering my outlook on life and realizing all I have to be grateful for.
When we are in the depths of our darkness maybe we can't come up with the positives that's where you cling to what others that you trust see and say. Ask them. People that don't have to hear the negatives of your brain and thoughts 24/7 are pretty great at seeing what's going right in your life.
Don't let it make you mad. Accept that their are good things in your life. Everyone has as least one. Find it and cling to it until the light comes.
I rather see you be okay with not always having to have full control than to see a false sense of confidence. Being vulnerable shows more confidence with oneself, accepting who you are flaws and all. Be goofy, be shy, as long as its you being confident in all that you are.
I really love my blog. At one point, I thought I was never going to be creative enough to write. I have gained more insights and confidence through mediation lately. I am so grateful people actually read my blog. I passed the 3000 views milestone and I am so happy that I can provide value to the world. Thank you so much everyone for all of your feedback on how the blog and the search for the meaning of life has affected you.

"VULNERABILITY IS THE BIRTHPLACE OF INNOVATION, CREATIVITY AND CHANGE." - Brene Brown.
As I stand here on my own connected to the ocean I think about my next move. The changes I have made & the changes yet to come. CHANGE could potentially be my middle name as I have changed a lot in my life over the past few years. Some people think I'm crazy with the amount of times I have either moved house or moved states, with a job, without a job, with friends, with no friends. I can see why they think it's crazy. However, I think it is so important to not "settle" for a life that isn't making our hearts sing. Whenever I have made a big change it is usually because something has clicked inside of me. It almost feels as if the universe has been pushing me & knocking at my door. It continues to knock & push until I listen to it. There is some kind of energetic pull in a different direction to where I thought I was heading & BOOM finally I pay attention & then my next change or decision is made. I've realised through all of these changes that there is no specific length of time that you should spend in order to make your decision about your situation. Sometimes I have pondered on decisions for weeks, written down pros & cons of each, fully analysed the situation with numerous friends & family & then other times I have purely winged it over night. Both ways have proven to be beneficial 😀. It's the times in my life that I have felt most vulnerable that I have learnt so much. It's those times that I have spent so much time on my own that I have tapped into the creative part of my soul. It's those times I will never forget because those are the times we are pushed to change, we are encouraged to grow and we are forced to reconnect and realign with our purpose. I'm sure most of you can relate in some way. Don't fear change, embrace it. Here weeee go again 🙌🙌🙌💫💫💫 #embracechange#changeforyou#dontfearchange#oceanismyhome#followyourheart#listentointuition#timetogo#vulnerability#individuality#brenebrown#brenebrownquotes#oceangirl#makingdecisions#takearisk#whoo
why go bland if you can have the most colourful palace around? why limit yourself to grey stone if you have colours all around you? i feel like most limits we have in our life we have put on ourselves before. yes there is pressure from society/family/friends/work but you can always chose to break out of this cycle. always remember it is your choice to build your life with grey stones or create a life full of colours! #doesthismakesense#justtalking#ilikecolours
Having empathy is not a special gift, it is a choice each and every one of us make on a daily basis. When did caring about another person become a gift!? We connect to others by truly being present and listening to the unspoken words that are written on their faces and seen in their eyes, to feel their vulnerability and to recognise we have all been there.
Knowing how that person feels but not trying to fix them, just being there to support them when they need it most. To lend a hand and a listening ear.
Each of us have gone through something that has challenged and changed us. Be a light for others when they are in the dark, sometimes the brightest stars shine on the darkest nights. 💛 Love Sharon
#authenticselfie I need to hand it to all the runners out there. I've never been drawn to running as a form of exercise but I know my body needs pushing, it's getting too comfortable, and comfort only leads to stagnation. If I want to get the most out of me, I need to challenge myself and nothing is more challenging for me than running. I couldn't even run around my block. I knew it would be physically challenging but what I didn't expect was how emotionally challenging it was. At the gym everyone is exercising, we are all sweating, puffing and it means we are all equally vulnerable. However running around my neighbourhood, I was the odd one out, everyone else was just doing daily life which left me standing out. I felt their eyes follow me, probably purely because I caught their eye. It left me so vulnerable, my red face, my sweat, my jiggly bits were out for all to see. Exercise was no longer private and I really felt like people would judge me for not running well, or looking silly. I soon changed that tape playing in my mind to one of encouragement. Even if they were judging me, which really I doubt they were, did I want other people to stop me from looking after my body? No!!! Let them stare, I will not be erased, I will not be made to feel like I don't have a right to run, or jump or sing. My body, my way. Instead of beating myself up, suddenly I was cheering myself on. "Look at you go, you are a champion, look at you not caring what people think, you're giving others courage to run too". Suddenly I was no longer self conscious and I proudly ran around my block!!! Hooray. I love that with running seeing my progress will be pretty easy, I'll be able to compare how far I could run without stopping. So excited to add this to the ways I move my body. Hope you enjoy my running face photos 🙌🏻
It's hard being vulnerable. It's something I struggle with, I have always lived under the delusion that it's a sign of weakness but Its just that a delusion, I think if you are able to show vulnerability it can actually make you stronger... anyway these are my recent scans from the F45 although I did well I never want people my actual weight number as I didn't want to show how bad I had let my weight get... please understand my number may not scary to you but for me I was disappointed in myself. So here is a little vulnerability to start me off
The phenomenon of loving you , with no choice but to surrender to it, you were put into my being and this is permanent... What God has joined let no man put asunder. The rare gift of such a bond.
The fine line of always loving you knowing that you will never commit to loving me back and keeping my heart open to you regardless, with no agenda, but a longing to be with you that will never leave me, because the Universe has made it such.
Choosing to stay vulnerable and authentic to my feelings and souls longing yet at the same time respecting your choices and boundaries and accepting that the longing will never be met by you.
Yes, I will always be vulnerable to you....because my heart will never stop loving you and my soul will never stop wanting to be with yours.
I love you always and forever ❤🔥🌀✴ #twinflame#twinflamehealing#twinflames#twinsouls#mirrorsouls#soulhealing#soulmates#connected#vulnerability#aunthenticity
**I've lived this dichotomy for a long, long time.** It's not always as bad as it has been lately. It comes and goes and for a long while depression had faded away. But here it is again and I need to fight it intelligently.
Part of me doesn't care what anyone thinks, and the other part of me cares very much. It's hard to put yourself out there and be vulnerable. For many years I tried to hide my problems because I was afraid of being judged. In high school people often accused me of whoring for attention when I was depressed. That was a particularly painful thing to hear. When I'm miserable in depression it can make a positive difference to hear support and love from people but let me tell you, most of the time it doesn't even matter. It's like white noise because my brain is both numb and on overdrive trying to maintain sanity and not succumb to the dark thoughts that plague me.
99% of the time when I'm depressed I don't want any attention at all from anyone other than a girlfriend if I have one at the time. I don't like feeling pitied, judged, or misunderstood, and I ESPECIALLY don't like people seeing me when I'm down because I don't want them to have that impression of me. It feels like the wrong version of Jeremy. It's embarrassing.
I've gone back and forth several times in my mind about whether or not I wanted to share with the world my struggles with depression and with life for the reasons above, but one good thing I know about myself is that I love to help people. I'm not always great at helping myself but I've been able to make a positive impact on others throughout my life.
I also know that depression is becoming a hot topic due to celebrity suicides and it also recently became an issue for someone I love.
If the public sharing of my thoughts and struggles give insight to any of you on the outside, or encouragement and hope to those of you who struggle with it alongside me - that is more than enough reason for me to be vulnerable. Peace.
We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves to be deeply seen and known, and when we honor the spiritual connection that grows from that offering with trust, respect, kindness and affection.
Love is not something we give or get; it is something that we nurture and grow, a connection that can only be cultivated between two people when it exists within each one of them – we can only love others as much as we love ourselves.
Shame, blame, disrespect, betrayal, and the withholding of affection damage the roots from which love grows. Love can only survive these injuries if they are acknowledged, healed and rare.
Getting REAL with myself tonight during the New Moon in Virgo... Every New Moon is a chance to de-clutter and clear the things that no longer serve you, but this one... this one is special for me. .
The New Moon tonight represents a level of healing that I've been yearning to dig deep into. I've been on a rollercoaster ride for the past 3 years, and have peeled back so many layers of deep wounds that ran all the way back to my childhood. Painful, gut wrenching, scared to my bones, happy, at peace... you name it, I've felt it. .
But, I've come to a point of living between two worlds: the old one that I grew used to. The panic "illness" inflicted Christina.... and the new one.. the SUCCESSFUL, INTELLIGENT, GIFTED Christina who is stepping into her full power and potential. .
Why teeter between the two? I'm not sure... yet. Time to dive into the unknown and come out like the Phoenix rising from the ashes, full of freedom and power; Embracing the true Christina... the best one yet! .
Just before you think you gonna lose it, step into surrender and accept the situation, emotion, feeling... whatever it is. Bow your head, spread your arms and let it all be. •
It's OK to NOT be OK!! Sharing with the world the real me, & some current struggles.... in the hope that others will feel comfortable reaching out & sharing & hanging in there - for its true that 'it too shall pass....'

Do you ever wake up feeling really crummy about yourself?
Questioning & wondering why certain people exclude or isolate you? Realizing people who you thought were friends, haven't treated you as a friend should.
Yeah that was me yesterday. It's so easy to feel crappy & crummy about yourself. And to listen to the criticism of others. It's hard work to shift your focus & mindset to dwell on truth.
I'm thankful for friends & my husband who encourage me & help me shift my focus.
Coz truth is, life is messy. Not everyone will like you. Not everyone will care. Not everyone will rejoice with you.
BUT refocusing our mind to feel powerful, beautiful, brilliant, brave and knowing we have a purpose alters the direction of our whole life. And that is also TRUTH. #morethanconquerors#vulnerability
Corporate culture so often is about striving to create a cohesive group of people where everyone who succeeds feels like they are in synergy with each other and fit into the culture.
Though that pressure to fit for many pales in comparison to the pressures to fit in in middle school or high school.
But fitting in really is the opposite of belonging. Fitting in is changing yourself to a mould of what you think people want you to be.
True belonging is being true to yourself. Belonging to yourself first. Then in turn belonging to everyone who chooses to accept you exactly as you are.
I neither have time nor energy to try to win over anyone anymore. But in writing this I realize I still do try to fit in at times, so enough of that I say! As my bio says, striving to be my authenric self, no masks - i.e. no fitting in.
Oh, and my tweety bird keeps me company in momemts of contemplation 😉
Inspired to write this after reading the new #BreneBrown @BreneBrown book Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone.
Not going to lie... working with family isn't always a breeze. My mom might be my best friend, but man we can really knock heads sometimes (yesterday!). I know that while we're still frustrated with each other, we go through this bc we really do have a close mother-daughter friendship, we work passionately, and we are stubborn pain-in-the-butts. No matter what, my mom is someone I look up to, someone I need, and someone who has helped me become the person I am (hmmm does she want credit for that or not... might be a toss up! 😂). I can't imagine trying to do this with anyone else. Growth and change are always hard, but mom, I'm glad we get to do it together. Love you. And Dad, thanks for being the ref telling us when we need to go back to our corners 🥊🥊😂😂... love you too. #reallife#motherdaughter#smallbusiness#vulnerability#truths#growth
