The Vulnerability Project is a radical attempt to make social media more human by openly sharing our fuck ups and fears along with the fun in our lives in order to engage with life and each other more authentically, foster a supportive community around each of us and build resiliency in ourselves.
Beginning May 1, 2016, I am challenging myself to post 1 thing every day to social media that makes me feel vulnerable in some way. The intention isn’t to garner sympathy or attention, or to justify the necessity of pain in our evolution or an excuse to remain in a victim mindset, but rather to build resilience by intentionally exposing myself to situations that scare me and where I feel I might be judged for being human and being who I am. I will also periodically post to a blog here about lessons I have learned along the way.
If you’re interested in joining me, there are really no rules, save one: you may NOT compulsively check your posts for comments or reactions from others. You can look, but keep in mind that the goal here isn’t to seek approval or validation, just to be ourselves. Feel free to use any of the hashtags below to include your posts on you own page or you can post them on my Facebook page if you like. You are also welcome to add me as a friend on Facebook, follow me on Twitter or Instagram, or follow my progress on my Facebook Page, Heather Hunter, Words are Wishes.
