Explore Instagram "vulnerable" hashtag

For my arts-based MA research inquiry, I explored women's experience of first-time pregnancy, as my own journey had impacted me so significantly; in so many wonderful ways and then, in many not so wonderful ways. For me, the not so wonderful was the anxiety, and how other women responded to me... The short answer is: it wasn't good... What I needed was solidarity + connection. I didn't need unsolicited advice + judgment. I didn't need my baby to be referred to as a parasite or to be told my back would soon become fat... 👀 I wanted to know what other women had experienced and how we can better companion people experiencing transition. I love this animation of Brene Brown's definition of empathy and what it means to be empathetic; it's learned, it's intentional, it's perspective taking, it's feeling with, which means, it's vulnerable. This is connection. And of all the tools + processes I use as an Arts Therapist, genuine empathy is the felt sense I value the most. #empathy https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=1Evwgu369Jw

Do You Really Want To Do This? 8x10 mixed media on paper. This is about taking a chance and diving into a new relationship after emerging from the ruins of all the past ones. Not easy, but so worth it. #secondchances #stopresisting #vulnerable #vulnerability #divorce #breakups #mixedmedia #wisconsinartist #localartist #art #artforsale #marriage #relationships #relationshipgoals #watercolor #sharpie

E va sempre così, che tanto indietro non si torna. E va sempre così, che parli ma nessuno ascolta. E va sempre così..che vuoi cambiare ma non servirà soltanto una promessa… Salvami e allunga le tue mani verso me.. Prendimi e non lasciarmi sprofondare.. Salvami ed insegnami ad amare come te e ad essere migliore E va sempre così, che tanto lui poi non ritorna E va sempre così, che aspetti il sole e cade pioggia.. e va sempre così… #vulnerable #babydontcry #babydontlie #nope #hope #fullmoon #sadgirl #sadmoment #mood #photooftheday #latergram #imagin8 #l4l #xoxo #yolo

Being vulnerable and transparent is the only way you can truly be yourself. Learning that if you are and you are then not someone's cup of tea or they can't handle your truth, is the best thing! Life is too short to spend it wearing masks to please others. "Tell the truth, all the time, with compassion." - David T.S Wood #vulnerable #beyou #choosewellness #love #sarahclark #beyourself #transparent #open #truth #honesty@sarah_clark111

Somehow, a poem, a story, a song has more meaning when it comes from your soul #browneyedsoulman #writer #soul #vulnerable

Friday was nothing short of #amazing. Took Puki to the vet after he was crying and barking all night in pain. He turned out to be fine. #spoileddoggot prescribed his meds, salmon, omega 3s, and rest. Took him for a swim on Sunday and he's good! Then ... @ladygaga gave a performance for the upcoming film #astarisbornand I got to be a part of with my mom! I'm a huge fan of Lady Gaga and the revolution she represents in being your own best friend, loving yourself, and spreading love. Her music has been a big part of my life, and the transformative years of becoming a young adult in the world when it at times seemed scary and unwelcoming, and not as idyllic as I thought it'd be. And she was a big part of me discovering my greatness and how that can change over time, and that you may not know what it will look like - it can be #weirdasfuck, #created, #imaginative, #chingona, #new, #truetoself, and #vulnerable. So, that's why I am so happy I got to be a part of it. I love Lady Gaga! We connected for a moment and I felt like the brother on Wedding Crashers - "we had a moment!" But I don't care. Supporting each other is #1. No matter what it looks like, support your peers. Support what you believe, what excites you, what lights you up. #exerciseempowerment #lovepower #shrineauditorium #losangeles

Do you want to heal? Then pain needs to be felt. It just does. It needs your attention, and it's asking you to be there for it. You can spend all day evading it, working, texting, self-medicating, but when you lay your head down at night... there it is. Insomnia is a result of what you have not been willing to face all day. You can't run and rest at the same time. • Evading tactics cause more pain. They aren't doing what you think they're doing. They are suppressing you and making you dull, lifeless, spiritless, disconnected. • Don't be afraid. Don't look away. The silent watcher within you is asking you to see her, to embrace her, to love her. She lives in you and sees all you do. She watches you ignore her calling. She is waiting for you to pay attention, to stop hiding and running and covering your eyes. ______________________________ My healing sessions are blowing my mind. I'm so grateful I listened to what was being asked of me. I've never felt so aligned to my calling, and I already know that this is my life's work. • Sessions are donation based (for now), an hour long, over Skype, women only. If you feel the pull, if you hear the call, you can trust it. You can trust that the goddess within is ready to emerge. She's been waiting for you (and you know it). • If you're curious, send me a message. If you're ready, send me a message. If you have questions, send me a message. I'm here for you. ILY.

Sometimes when friends are going through a difficult time, we turn away (perhaps subconsciously). We may step on eggshells 🐣 so as not to say the wrong thing, we may retreat because we don’t know what to do, and we may withdraw from the friendship because it hurts us. This weekend we got deep into @sherylsandberg’s Plan B and learned some top shelf advice on how to treat friends when they’re low AF. “The most powerful thing you can do is acknowledge. To literally say the words: I acknowledge your pain. I’m here with you.” In other words, make nice with the elephant in the room by simply saying hello. Loneliness is the number one by-product of tragedy, and it sucks the big one. Help your friend feel less alone by simply acknowledging what’s happened. . . . #dolifebetter #honesty #vulnerable #selfcare #mentalhealth #goodmentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthawarenessmonth #hereforyou #community #stopstigma #mentalwellbeing #wellness #planb

~~ Day in the life of Marlana.. Wake up and fix Seva breakfast.. then clean, play with Seva then clean some more lol, feed him lunch then nap time which usually consists of more cleaning and a lil break, maybe some yoga if I have time.. Seva wakes up and eats a snack we play some more, I do a little art maybe a little laundry and then it's dinner time. I cook and then clean againnnn... bathe Seva read him a book and then he's off to sleep..this is when I get my actual break which is why I'm up until 2am every night enjoying my alone time lol. . . Being a stay at home mom is rewarding but exhausting and it's hard trying not to feel robotic in my everyday routine. . . Shout out to all my other stay at home mom's I hope that you don't loose your mind this Monday I'm trying really hard to grip onto mine lol . . ~ #namaste #zen #happymonday #stayathomemom #rainyday #fairyforest #roses #flowart #flowerfairy #art #sacredcircle #nature #movingmeditation #beautyinnature #rainbow #forest #dreamy #magic #mystical #dreary #artist #loveandlight #spiritjunkie #vines #vulnerable #love #hope #momlife #naturelovers

It's finished and titled "Delicious Ambiguity" after a quote from Gilda Radner. Sometimes it takes awhile for me to fully understand what a painting is telling me. This one is about relationships symbolized by what is going on between the two snails on either side of the canvas. Lol. 🙃🎨 #vulnerable #noexpectations #fearless #artistsoninstagram #surrealism #symbolism #tarot #cincinnati #art #relationship
