When I think about the word exposed, many things come to mind. Feelings when you let yourself open to someone you trust after being hurt so badly that putting your emotions on the line makes you feel vulnerable..
How many professions deal with being exposed? To the weather, wiring in construction and electrician. A stripper or hooker with little covering her as she tries to make a living to support her kids cause times got rough. Photography and film development before the digital cameras and memory cards.
How do we get sunburns? Being exposed to the sun too long with no lotion applied.
There is many things we are exposed to in life. Good and bad alike.
