The day you find out you are not invincible marks the beginning of a luminous journey. It is a journey of vulnerability. It is the raw realization of your humanity. You can only be truly capable of loving others once you have found your own vulnerability. It is by the loving acceptance of your own flaws, your innermost fears, that you can truly accept others in their full beauty.
Love can only come to be from a place of vulnerability within ourselves. The struggle for perfection, success, fortune, status, is emptied once you have reached this place. You can only truly understand what it means to be human when you have finally learned that vulnerability is what makes us all human and therefore worthy of love in all its imperfect beauty.
