that's a good realisation I think Rayko. how being vulnerable is in realation to other(s) - otherwise its a sort of sad detachment, perhaps its a survival trait. I've been there its quite a wretched place. We are after all relational beings. Time spent alone is of great great value to self realisation,... and so is our interaction with others. If interaction with others is less than we 'need' (for our own highest expression), we're not expressing the fullness of ourselves. Of course 'others' might be partners, friends, colleagues, neighbours, animals, nature, guides etc. Interactions may be challenging, beautiful etc.

Many indiginous American tribes finish/begin ceremony etc with the term 'for all my relations'. I think that's so beautiful - it referes to the interconnection that we are part of.

best wishes
