The vulnerability honesty births is sometimes so hard to endure. Being your true self with someone is a thing of courage. Here I am giving you everything, opening up, standing naked before you, showing you my soul, even the parts I am not comfortable with, the parts I hate, and the parts of me I keep hidden. I am sharing with you my precious beliefs, the foundation on which my life is built, standing here with your eyes fixed on me, no defense against any cut or burn. Yet vulnerability is the only way a relationship can grow for love demands depth and a true knowledge of what it loves.
