… it may take a focused effort to embrace it.
… it takes conscious un-training to embrace it.
… it will likely require un-training to embrace it.
To be seen, you need to show yourself. Doing so, it’s of the utmost importance not to judge anything you find in the vulnerable state. You need to practice self respect and love for what you see. Vulnerability without self criticism gives you integrity, strength, self respect and warmth. It opens up for genuine contact. It’s highly attractive! It’s like coming home.
