It's hard to imagine being 100% open (vulnerable), or 100% closed/protective (invulnerable) - total vulnerability or invulnerability is impossible.   How about something in the middle - rooted in 100% of your values?  We find this approach reduces suffering, and leads to better health and wellness.
