Vulnerability makes for better communication.

We often feel that if we are vulnerable we will expose our weakness and put ourselves in the position to be exposed, harmed, or even attacked emotionally or physically. Being vulnerable may look like a risk of getting hurt, but being vulnerable also welcomes the chance for open communication, connection, and growth. Opening up to anyone isn't always the easiest thing to do put often the most effective. In order to break down barriers vulnerability is a must. Some examples of Vulnerability are as follows:

* Taking chances that might lead to rejection

* Talking about mistakes you have made

* Sharing personal information that you would normally keep private

*Feeling difficult emotions such as shame, grief, or fear

*Reconnecting with someone you have fallen out with
