I tell my wife everything. Absolutely everything. All my victories and shortcomings are shared with her. She knows the best of me and the worst of me. And vice versa.
If I intentionally kept things from her, I would damage the connection. And of all the people I need to stay vulnerable with, it’s my spouse.
And the beautiful thing about vulnerability and connection is the freedom that results. You can only be free when you’re willing to be vulnerable.
Yes, you’ll probably get hurt sometimes. But you’ll also experience the deepest, most meaningful relationships of your life.
So the next time you see someone growing a moustache or doing something different, don’t avoid it or pretend to like it.
