Love can never exist without honesty. Honesty with yourself and with others is necessary for love to be real. Would you rather love who you know someone is or who you are led to believe they are? Do you want someone to love you for who you really are or a person you portray to be?
We can avoid disappointment and heartbreak by simply being honest. The more honest you can be, the more honest is the love you experience.
No one is flawless. Be open. Be vulnerable. If the person you are with (or aspire to be with), embraces the you… the honest you, love will flourish.
Love and stuff,
