Ylona Garcia took to social media on Saturday, sharing a random realization.
In an Instagram post, wherein she also shared a video of a brief song performance, Ylona pondered on what she has learned about being vulnerable.
She said in the caption: "[To be honest], I don’t like having to be vulnerable cos it makes me feel weak and [people] can somehow use that to their own selfish advantage and it [really really] scares me."
"But I’m learning that vulnerability is the bridge to human connection," Ylona continued. "And I want that."
The Next Teen Superstar also shared a quote from podcast host Brene Brown.
"Vulnerability is not about winning or losing; it’s having the courage to show up and be seen when we have no control over the outcome."
"So Imma be me [and] y’all be yourselves," Ylona noted.
