I do believe allowing myself to be vulnerable opens the door to those who love me. It allows them to know what's going on with me. When I'm hurting or weak or just down, someone is there for me.
I can remember the years I remained closed. In my mind it was too dangerous to open up. I was sneaky and secretive. I also lied a lot. Today, I don't have to do that. I have no secrets and realize, I'm as sick as my secrets.
Today I am safe to be sick without trying to cover it up. There are no conclusions to jump to or blame. I don't have to wonder if it was my fault or just my body having a problem.
No matter what the situation I am free to feel what I feel, be what I am and know that I am doing the best I can.
