Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. (Ecclesiastes 4:12, NIV)
Real connections require vulnerability. It can be difficult to be vulnerable, to share raw emotion and present it to someone else unsure of what they will do with it. They may mend your open wound or throw dirt in it. You won’t know until you put yourself out there. Know that whatever happens after you reveal the real you, whether you are nurtured or hurt, you can handle it.
