"Your fragility is also your strength." Pina Bausch, 1966
I woke up this morning to a quote in my news feed. ''Your fragility is also your strength'' This couldn't be more on point with what I've been feeling lately. I've been struggling with letting others in, and being comfortable in a vulnerable state. It's shitty. I still censor myself. It doesn't feel natural. And I've been wrestling with it. It's hard to get out of your head and see the bigger picture when you're caught up in a flood of details. I still feel like I'm navigating the seas of what my authentic self is. Is it too much? Am I okay with it if no one else is? I'm not sure why we're so hard on ourselves. I'm allowed to be in an incomplete state, as are the ones around me. There is beauty in being unflinchingly human. There is strength in admitting you are weak.
