Ego, the voice in our heads that tells us what to do and how to be, is an important part of our lives. It can protect us from potential harm. Ego motivates us to achieve greatness.

But ego can also be poisonous when it stands in the way of self-love and happiness, preventing you from sharing your feelings with others or living authentically. When you’re not revealing who you are full, people will never know who their true friends are or why they should care about you. In fact, you’ll even confuse yourself.

Ego also fuels insecurities and self-doubt, making us feel as though we’ll be rejected if we show others who we really are. This is where vulnerability comes in. But why should you give it a chance? Why should you let go of your ego, and stop believing that your thoughts are the absolute truth? I’ve come up with a few reasons to try it out for yourself…

1) Vulnerability reduces fear of rejection (and more).

People hit on vulnerability because they want the negative emotions that come with it to stop.

They aren’t expecting anything positive from being vulnerable, but they inevitably get something back.

Vulnerability is something that you have to have in order to have love and a deep emotional connection with someone.

Whether it’s family, friends, or a romantic partner, vulnerability is what makes us human. It’s how people connect with each other and form strong bonds.

When people are vulnerable with you, it makes you feel good about yourself because it shows that they trust you enough to share their inner demons.

Through vulnerability, people learn more about themselves and others and the world around them.

The idea that some sort of rejection is inevitable when someone is being vulnerable isn’t true.

People can learn from rejections because they make them aware of why they were rejected, which can help strengthen their relationships in the future.

2) The ego can make you feel alone, which is what makes vulnerability scary.
