Openness. What exactly does that mean? Most of us know it is opposite of closed off but. By definition openness means to feel free to express one’s true feelings and opinions. And yet how many of us truly experience openness with others? Where we are not concerned about judgement or rejection about being open? In today’s society being open is frowned upon. To have opinions different than others is something that should be avoided rather than embraced. Openness has become looked at as something “not good,” threatening. Something that should be inhibited rather than encouraged. And yet it is openness that can help set us free. So does that mean there are more people in the world that would rather be closed off, a prisoner of sorts, rather than be open and free? Something to consider.
Namaste, my friends.
