I only share when I have no unmet needs that I’m trying to fill. Being vulnerable with an audience is only a good idea if the healing is tied to the sharing, not to the expectations I might have for the response I get.
Yes. Vulnerability is an incredible thing. But on social media, we shouldn’t overshare pain in order to find healing from those who can’t heal us. Often times it will leave us feeling bankrupt and cheated, like we have written checks to others with no money in our bank to give. Vulnerability is powerful and must be given with care. Not something to toss around in an effort to be ‘real’ and ‘raw.’
