Vulnerability is a Strength

Vulnerability is a Strength

by Naomi, age 13

Vulnerability is a strength, not a weakness
It is a sign of power

Vulnerability can be your anchor or your wings
You can let it take you down
or use it to your advantage
You can let it take control of your emotions
or you can embrace it

Feeling vulnerable
is like looking at the tip of an iceberg
You don’t know what is below
the surface of the water
You don’t know what’s coming next

But do not let anyone ever tell you
that being vulnerable is a sign weakness
because it is not

It is a strength
and it’s your choice if you want
to let it overpower you or
to use it to thrive
