Removing the Armor

Most people walk around like they’re wearing an armored suit — never letting anyone see their true selves.

Armor feels safe but it carries a lot of weight.

Weight that never allows you to form deep and meaningful connections with others.

Revealing our true selves with all our weaknesses is scary but what grows from it is trust.

The true self is the first thing we look for in people yet it’s the last thing we want to show others.

Showing your weaknesses doesn’t make you look weak, it proves that you’re strong.
