When it comes to relationships, a lot of people think they need to put up a wall to protect themselves. They believe that if you are too vulnerable, you will be hurt.
However, research has shown that vulnerability is actually one of the keys to successful relationships. In this blog post, we will explore the truth about vulnerability and how it can lead to love.
So why is vulnerability so important? When you are vulnerable, you are showing your true self. Don’t hide behind a facade or pretend to be something you are not.
This allows your partner to see your real life and decide if they want to have a relationship with you. If they do, they will probably appreciate your honesty and openness.
Many singles I work with fall into the trap of marketing where they transform into something they are not, trying to become more attractive to the other person.
The marketing trap only ends up attracting the wrong kind of person. Most singles tell me they feel so anxious trying to keep up with this farce; this is a way to please people.
Eventually, the true version of these singles is revealed, and most relationships will not last because the relationship never started based on true authenticity.
Brene Brown is a researcher who studies courage, vulnerability, and shame. She says that “owning our history can be difficult, but not as difficult as spending our lives running away from it.”
In the following video, I share part of my own story of learning to be vulnerable in relationships.

To do so, to be vulnerable, means to own all the parts of you, even the parts that may embarrass you. For example, you may have been cheated on before, and sometimes you become insecure about relationships.
In the early stages of dating, it’s perfectly fine to ask questions to understand how your potential partner can support a person with insecurities about cheating. Instead, most singles in this situation become great and pretend to have confidence.
Sharing this important information about yourself will help you understand if this person can be a loving and accepting partner in the future. The right partner will want to support you instead of judging you. That’s why vulnerability allows you to make a deeper connection with your partner.
When you share your true thoughts and feelings with them, they are more likely to respond. This will create a strong bond between the two of you that can withstand the storms that come your way.
Of course, being vulnerable doesn’t mean you have to share everything about yourself right away. You should still take some time to get to know your potential partner before you start sharing your deepest secrets.
But if you want to create a lasting and loving relationship, vulnerability is essential.
So the next time you’re considering a new relationship, don’t be afraid to lower your guard and be vulnerable. Maybe it’s the best thing you’ve ever done.
