VULNERABILITY:

Feb 26, 2016 - 6 comments

There is something strangely beautiful about seeing someone at their most vulnerable; for that one moment they appear just as they are, and nothing more. Its not lack of strength, or really a reminder of humanity, but instead a new perspective of what happens behind the scenes.This person was completely unaware that i saw her, - someone with a heart of pure kindness who would always smile cheerfully at me- break. It made me realise that our realities aren't always as they seem, as things are constantly changing, and things are happening everywhere. And just because one doesn't witness it, doesn't mean it doesn't occur. When I saw her next, there was beauty and strength in the way that she appeared, and it made me feel an even stronger admiration towards her.

Courage rises from vulnerability.

I love this post too , I love the way you write when you're inspired, it's very special. I'm really glad that you were able to get a glimpse into what all people go through, and realize it's not just you that hurts.

Wouldn't it be something if this women was somewhat aware that you were in the vicinity,? and her knowing you, and knowing what a sensitive soul you are yourself, that she felt safe in your presence? more so than a young girl that had never expressed any weakness themselves ? or a young girl that she knew to be cruel and careless in her opinion of others? in other words, if any one student were to have had a brief glimpse into her personal life, i'm sure that she would, or Was, GLAD that it Was you. You have become More compassionate, More trustworthy will feelings; More well rounded than if everything had come too easy for you.

Thanks Liz.
Also, I actually stopped for  second when i saw her upset that day, and the other teacher said "No", so I obviously took that it wasn't my business, which i new already. But that teacher then later came up to me and said "I want to apologize for  brushing you off the other day when you were expressing concern for your teacher". And I said it was alright and everything and that I knew that it wasn't any of my business. She told me that everything was sorted and it should all be okay.
Im quite glad that she came up to me and said that actually, because I felt quite bad about stopping when I knew it wasn't any of my business, but then again i was just shocked to witness her like that,, and my feet just stopped.

But yeah, so I dont think the teacher saw me, and I've continue to talk to her as normal, which really what i saw "normally" shouldn't change anything as I know she is human, but for me considering how much this teacher means to me, I feel like I've seen a side of her that many other students havent. I'm very observant nowadays, and I just questions and write about whatever I find peculiar or special about the world and the people in it. It gives me a bit of a lift when I feel that my mood is starting to sink. It feels great to know that I have this type of control, and i can usually wirte anything down, even if its a word or two, whenever I like.

I'm glad the teacher took the time to say that your interest was a good thing, given that you care about your teacher. I wouldn't say that it's wasn't any of your business, though. and i think that's why the teacher said that by saying you were expressing concern. It's a good thing that you expressed concern, and had that teacher not had the other teacher around, i think it would have been fine for you to go up to the teacher that was crying, and give her a hug. and ask her if she wanted to talk about it.  You're getting to the age of becoming an full adult yourself, so soon there will be no age limit that would stop you from taking control of a situation that was in need of your caring attitude. Soon, it will be you that is taking the lead and helping others that are in need of a caring person to help them during a time of personal crisis. You're well on your way of becoming the type of person that can help a person in crisis the most.
