Root of Emotional Healing

Updated: Nov 7, 2021

In understanding the etymology of "vulnerability" meaning “wound” or “to wound,” it follows that we can view emotional vulnerability then, as an act of placing oneself to potentially being emotionally wounded. That’s an act of courage- to be bold enough and willing to face the potential danger of being hurt.

Make no mistake about it, it’s scary and difficult. We’ve been hurt, disappointed, unheard, and minimized before. So we know the potential pain of stepping closer towards vulnerability with others. So there is value in being careful in who we chose to be vulnerable with.

Carl Jung stated “that which we need most will be found where we least want to look.” And our human need for close, intimate, healing, honest, and open relationship can only be found through vulnerability. So, it’s a process of seeing the potential danger of vulnerability, being careful in who we chose to open up with, and having the courage and strength to encounter such a relationship because we trust that it’s what we most genuinely need.
