Vulnerability…

I was out for dinner with a friend the other night and she was really upset from an earlier argument with one of her friends.  Apparently this disagreement was intense and it brought up old resentment and irritations.  Both are rather stubborn and strong willed ladies and this was like the straw that broke the camel’s back.  She initially tried to keep it together over the appetizer but couldn’t and ended up pouring it all out.  I listened intently as she expressed her frustrations, confusion and fears about this relationship.  On dropping her off, she immediately got on the phone and spent about 20 minutes venting about the issue with another friend.  After this, she seemed much happier, content and lighter like a weight had been taken off.  I was happy for her.  On my drive home that night, I realise how sharing our burdens, pains and emotional stress is a key part of relationships.   I think this is something girls are generally good at due to their caring, feeling and nurturing nature.  Guys generally don’t have this as tend to be driven by their ego and it takes a lot before true emotions become visible.  This is something I believe would make a big difference in my life and I’m currently open to being more open in my male relationships.

I would love to hear any feedback, suggestions or stories about your own journey…
