As you go deeper and peel away another layer you will feel the vulnerability and urge to hide.

 

Uncovering a layer is removing emotional armor that no longer serves you. It takes time to get comfortable with the vulnerability of your new skin, don’t rush it. This exposed layer will become worn in time and you will no longer need to wear it as protection. You will own the vulnerability as a part of your foundation, as your strength, as part of the real you.

 

When the vulnerability turns to strength another layer will be peeled away and the process will start over. This can be extremely painful at first, but with each layer exposed, it becomes easier,  to the point where we look forward to the next one, knowing growth, strength, and confidence is being built.
