Eye to Eye Conclusion

Finding the courage to open your heart isn’t easy. It exposes the way you really feel, how you think and leaves you open to the opinions of others. It makes you vulnerable.

Often what you might think makes you weak, really makes you strong. Your experiences, and opinions are the very things that make you, you.

Sharing yourself with others is one of the most powerful things you can do. But you have to be willing to back yourself and trust the way you feel.
