Warts and All
The first time I saw this expression I fell for it. Totally. Good relationships are not really so fragile. Revealing the real you – warts and all- requires courage. But the honestly it is worth it. It takes away the stress of pretence with loved ones. And leaves a warm glow of understanding and acceptance.
Accepting each other - warts and all- means that there is conviction in the relationship. Be it the relationship shared by parent-child, husband-wife, or among friends. We get to love the person along with his/her bad temper, or scattered wet towels or embarrassing loud sneezes…
Go for it.
Talk about one wart and see how the relationship handles this one. You will be surprised at the relief that flows in.
