Feel Good Blogging Challenge #6: A Vulnerable Post

Here we are at day 6! For today, Alex Beadon has challenged us to write about something vulnerable. If you’ve been keeping up with my Feel Good Blogging Challenge posts, you know that the purpose of this blog is to document my journey to creativity and finding my passions. So that in itself and putting myself out here like this is what makes me vulnerable. And I think because of my lack of passions, that influences how I act around people and contributes to my shyness. When people ask me what I like to do, or what my hobbies are, I can name a long list of things that I enjoy doing. But for whatever reason, I can’t genuinely say “I love going to the beach in my free time.” Yes, I like going to the beach, but to me, since I don’t make the time for it all that often, I don’t consider it a hobby or passion. Make sense? To me, a hobby and/or passion is something that someone does regularly. I don’t do the same thing over and over regularly or consistently.

I’m very reserved in social situations because I don’t like talking about myself due to the fact that I can’t talk about my hobbies/passions. I have several close friends, and I prefer it that way. I don’t like taking ‘social’ risks in fear of what other people might think of me. (I know that I shouldn’t care about other’s opinions, and since high school, I’ve gotten a lot better about it, but I think it’s human nature to want to be accepted so that fear cannot be completely suppressed.

One of the purposes of this blog is to hopefully help me find my passion (which I think is in my business idea {see Day 2}). To do so, I need to be able to open up and successfully network and market myself so that other people believe in me and my goals. But before any of that, I need to believe in myself and take those chances that will help me to reach my full potential! (Which I’m sure is easier said than done, but if it’s my passion, I’ll work for it!

How has being vulnerable made you stronger?

  1. Nice post. It’s great you completed this days posts about vulnerability. Of all the days I think it was one of the most powerful and ties in very well with the passion post. Your right, if you believe in it you want you will get it. And yes, you have to believe in yourself before others believe in you. You sound passionate about it so keep at it! Great work!
