Vulnerability can appear at any moment in a person's life and is something that can either eat away at someone and tear them down or is something they will embrace and accept. Vulnerability has synonyms that are some of the scariest things for a person like defenselessness and susceptibility.

Danny always feels that people will judge him for his cousin and how he is different from everyone else.
