Tooth Of The Day

Tooth Of The Day Classic

Vulnerable

***

“The strongest love is the love that can demonstrate its fragility.”
― Paulo Coelho

***

“When you love someone, truly love them, you lay your heart open to them.
You give them a part of yourself that you give to no one else,
and you let them inside a part of you that only they can hurt-
you literally hand them the razor with a map of where to cut deepest
and most painfully on your heart and soul.
And when they do strike, it’s crippling-like having your heart carved out.”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon

***
“What happens when people open their hearts?”…
“They get better.”
― Haruki Murakami
***

“When we were children, we used to think that when we were grown-up we would no longer be vulnerable.
But to grow up is to accept vulnerability… To be alive is to be vulnerable.”
― Madeleine L’Engle

***

“To share your weakness is to make yourself vulnerable; to make yourself vulnerable is to show your strength.”
― Criss Jami
***
“A person is, among all else, a material thing, easily torn and not easily mended.”
Ian McEwan, Atonement
***
“And maybe that was love. Being so vulnerable and allowing someone else in so far they could hurt you, but they also give you everything.”
Christine Feehan, Water Bound
***
“What was it about relationships that made you feel so vulnerable? Oh, right. A relationship. In any relationship, you put yourself out there. You exposed all of your sensitive nerve endings and your heart and you just had to hope that you trusted the right person.”
Courtney Cole, Every Last Kiss
***
“Vulnerability is the only authentic state. Being vulnerable means being open, for wounding, but also for pleasure. Being open to the wounds of life means also being open to the bounty and beauty. Don’t mask or deny your vulnerability: it is your greatest asset. Be vulnerable: quake and shake in your boots with it. the new goodness that is coming to you, in the form of people, situations, and things can only come to you when you are vulnerable, i.e. open.”
Stephen Russell, Barefoot Doctor’s Guide to the Tao: A Spiritual Handbook for the Urban Warrior
***
“We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves to be deeply seen and known, and when we honor the spiritual connection that grows from that offering with trust, respect, kindness and affection.

Love is not something we give or get; it is something that we nurture and grow, a connection that can only be cultivated between two people when it exists within each one of them – we can only love others as much as we love ourselves.

Shame, blame, disrespect, betrayal, and the withholding of affection damage the roots from which love grows. Love can only survive these injuries if they are acknowledged, healed and rare.”
