Are we all so focused on not getting hurt that we’d destroy another to spare ourselves?

− Samantha King

World teaches us to be tough because if we don’t, we’ll get broken. Hit first before it hits you. Eye for an eye. Be strong. Be brave. Be bold. Don’t let them hurt you.

And at times, when we’re trying so hard to appear tough, we unconciously hurt other people and hurt ourselves in the process.

It is okay to be vulnerable. Not everyone deserves our vulnerability but some do. And it’s worth it. Being able to feel others because we let our guard down − because we allow ourselves to feel − is worth it.
