Have you shared yourself completely?

May 13, 2016

When was the last time you shared a piece of yourself with someone else? Or how about with lots of people? How about with the whole world even? When was the last time you just put yourself out there?

Don’t answer though. I want you to remember something different that happened in your life. This definitely happened. You just have to remember it:

When was the last time someone did that for you? When was the last time someone shared themselves with you? Do you remember that look on their face… that look of anticipation? The one that said I’m being vulnerable here, what do you think?

Maybe it was a really brave moment. Really raw. Maybe that person put their whole heart and soul into it. And they looked into your eyes, as if to say, I really hope you like this. Maybe on some level they were almost saying, I really hope you like me. I’d love for you to understand me. Because this— this is me. This is what I’m about. This is what I am here to share with the world.

And I’m ready to be seen.

Yeah. When was the last time someone did that for you?

Because it was a fucking gift.

When was the last time you gave that gift to someone? Or to lots of people?

And what the hell is stopping you?
