What’s your response to a violation of your vulnerability?
A vulnerability is the willingness to not control things. It includes and allows the possibility that someone will behave in a way that is hurtful. As I become better at setting boundaries and trusting myself, it becomes easier to be vulnerable with others. And to trust my intuition in choosing whether or not to be vulnerable to them. When someone crosses a boundary, I might feel angry or disappointed at first. And then I do what I need to care for my well-being, whether that means communicating, leaving, or cutting them out of my life.
