Its Okay To Be Vulnerable

How often do you do allow yourself to be vulnerable?

Our world is moving very fast and everyone is working hard to keep up with that pace,
We have been developed and modified to understand that there is no future for the “weak” species,
Being strong has become mandatory for survival in this planet.

Look at the girl child,
Am very happy that she was able to finally convince the world that she can do it,
In fact, what a man can do she can do it better,
We can all attest to that and that’s why we are all agreed on the gender equality.

The girl child was able to embrace her strength and mastered it,
Is it wrong for her to embrace her vulnerability too?
When she allows herself to be vulnerable then we label her weak,
What we forget is that everyone is vulnerable in one way or another,
And she is the most vulnerable one.

Have you ever observed how parents act towards their kids,
It’s very easy for a dad to harden his heart towards his kids (the tough love way)
But very impossible for a mother to do the same,
The kid may keep doing the same mistakes and the mother will continue giving them million chances.
That’s how they have been wired deep within their genetic composition.

Boy child is the most affected one here,
He grows knowing that he is the strongest gender,
He has no room for “weakness” or “vulnerability”,
They rarely show or allow anyone see their vulnerable part,
It’s like a taboo.

Sad thing is,
He goes through or even more than what the girl child goes through,
He too gets hurt, has urge to scream it all out and more,
But the society sees it in a bad way,
So they mostly end up bottling it up.

So what happens when you can no longer to keep it bottled up,
The pressure keep building within and the container is at risk of busting if not opened up,
Remember you have grown up knowing the act of just be strong,
No one cared enough to let you know that its okay to be vulnerable,
They “forgot” that chapter in the book of how to have a successful life.

We got so used of being strong,
It became part of us,
We no longer know the difference,
Is this okay?

I don’t think so,
We are humans with feelings,
Feelings that require our attention,
Feelings that will need us to be vulnerable sometimes,
So, it’s okay to be vulnerable.

Strong and vulnerable
