Learning to Undress

At this moment in my life, being a college student plays a major role in my identity. Throughout my first year of college, I discovered the power in being vulnerable. It has allowed me to find friends to love and more to appreciate in the world. Existing with an emotional vulnerability is almost, if not more daunting than being physically vulnerable. To be comfortably vulnerable is to be comfortable with uncertainty. Many things worth having in life are filled with uncertainty: love, joy, and creativity. In this past year, I've grown in so many ways. I wouldn't be where I am today or who I am today without learning to undress and expose myself to everything the world has to offer.
