Hey folks, its been a loooooooong time since I opened my JD and here I am sitting in my room with the window doors open, watching the cloud sobbing out all its worries at once.
The true vibes of solitude amazes me every time. While people all around preach meditation to train the mind devoid of thoughts, I enjoy and travel with my thoughts to explore on my uncleared doubts in life. I would love not to mistake this with over thinking but just putting thoughts on things that just happened without the feeling of regrets or any worries it could give.
Right now, I would like to share a piece of thought that has been traversing across my neurons in a random fashion since a long time.
So, I welcome you all to the world of vulnerability
The first thing that crosses my mind when one hears this word is DANGER. You are prone to be in danger either physically or mentally. The feeling coupled with various instances. Vulnerability in profession, in family, in love and in friendship and the list can go on to any minute detail such that all the vulnerabilities of the humanity is captured and taken into consideration. Even I am one among the poor souls who belong to this sample size and wondering how this feeling needs to be interpreted.
Here we go.
Vulnerabilities occur when something/someone has power over us. It can even be a situation that could take control or manipulate actions such that our hands are tied at both the ends. While I dig deeper, this emotion is very deeply connected to the most prevalent counterparts(since it exists in the same degree as Vulnerability in humans) , trust and fear. V is very closely related to these two elements and they actually engulf you and make you sink in the dark thoughts which paves the way for high level of misery. After being obsessed and doubtful about this feeling, indeed I feel I am in the loop of better understanding it.
BELIEVE, TRUST AND BRACE YOURSELF TO GET BURNT UP!!!!!!!!!!
This has been the mantra that I could figure out after endless thinking. I know the first question that could pop out would be why to believe in the first place to get burnt? I am very happy we all think alike but unless the element of belief exists within you on anything, you will never be able to cherish the happiness (which can be for a short span) at any occasion. It is very scientifically proven that you tend to feel good and take good decisions when you can share your experiences with your near and dear ones. Its just that a thought hits and tells you what if he/she whom you have expected to be a major part in your life’s journey is no more. Switch the mind to embrace the hopelessness and acknowledge its presence.
Now a question pops up to know what does it feel like embracing the hopelessness? According to the definition, to embrace is to hold someone in one’s arms, a sign of affection. In this situation whom do you think you should embrace to avoid uncertainties ? Yes, Its you who are to be embraced and taken care of. And no single person in the world would be able to show care for you more than yourself. Take a walk, listen to your favorite song, play the game you like, meet new people who you wish to be vulnerable with (haha)
As they have quoted, pain is inevitable; Suffering is optional. The ball is in our court.
Remember vulnerabilities occur when the object of interest has power over us but lets not forget the fact that it is our conscious decision to be taken control of
After prolonged thinking, I have been able to figure out idle mind is not devil’s workshop. In fact mind is never idle. It is a child which constantly looks to seek approval for any logic that it derives. All we have to do would be to nurture the child and trust its beliefs by experimenting what it says and thats exactly what made me to write this article.
Hope this helps !
