Vulnerability (vulnerable): Commonly understood to mean fragile, subject to hurt and harm usually from external sources, but sometimes by internal ones; a self-appraisal fashioned to justify negative emotions and negative orientations to relationships (such as fear, doubt, anger, withdrawal, blame, unlovingness, hostility). Spiritually understood to mean: 1. Emotionally open, that is, not closed off. Sensitive at the feeling level. 2. Humanly available, game, and willing to be implicated in relating, especially in relating as an open and loving person. 3. Given to a highly feeling form of unconditional, non-egocentric surrender which is otherwise known as love.
