I know that vulnerability is actually strength.

Vulnerability is confidence. 

Vulnerability is knowing that despite what you share and how you share it, you are powerful and strong and can survive anything.

Something to ponder: Am I more comfortable giving or receiving? Why is that? How can I find greater balance in giving and receiving?
