Being emotionally sliced open and exposed takes courage. Do not justify your vulnerability through a story or use it to connect with others. This makes for toxic relationships.
Let fear, insecurities, your ego run wild in the dark unseen and raw.
Love them if you can, for reminding you of your humanity.
And if you cannot love them, accept that they show you empathy for others.
And if you cannot accept them, simply watch them flail all over the place while you remain still.
And if you cannot watch them, surrender and let them take you to the depths of hell until they devour themselves entirely and your only option is to
then finally love.
