When I opened my hand to a stranger first time, I felt uncertain – will she open her hand to me as well? What if she refuses my handshake? What would other people think of me?
I felt vulnerable.
However, people also open their hands to me when I open mine.
It’s a brave action to open your hand first.
You are brave to bring yourself up to the front first.
Exposing your vulnerability is a brave action.
We grow from our vulnerability, becoming stronger and more connected.
