November is National Blog Post Month (NaBloPoMo). This post is part of my post-a-day challenge. I have picked a theme for the challenge: song titles. These songs have been featured on live albums from KEXP (an awesome alternative radio station in Seattle), so at a minimum you will hear some great music.
The word fold typically refers to a flock of sheep. Sheep are helpless out in the open. They flock together in folds because there is safety in numbers.
Being vulnerable is the key to developing real empathy and deeper relationships. Vulnerability allows you to grow. There has to be some risk that you will fail if you want to succeed at anything meaningful.
But don’t do it alone. Be vulnerable with other people that are also vulnerable. This is why I think the concept of the fold is important. Surround yourself with safe people. Protect your fellow sheep and grow together.
