Someone told me that the secret of a good relationship is to see someone’s flaws...and love them anyway.
That person, however, was not married to me.
Because flaws? I have oversized suitcases filled with flaws. @quantasairways
won’t let me fly because my flaw-filled bags are too heavy.
I’m impatient. I don’t rinse my dish. I’m always right (this may be a flaw...and a fact). I leave cabinets open, and lights on. I wear mismatched socks. I have opinions about opinions, which I share without being asked to. I ask inappropriate questions. I’m forgetful. And I’m selfish.
I could go on, but that’s just enough vulnerability without guzzling some wine.
Also, Joe asked me to get off Instagram so I could be present and—BOOM—here I am. Like I said: oversized luggage, boo.
I’m thankful for grace. I’m thankful someone willfully accepted me (and my suitcases). I’m thankful for the person who sees my flaws and loves me anyway.
And I’m thankful to put down my phone and enjoy presence with my best friend.
Wanna bond? Share a flaw (or ten) to join the journey toward self-betterment.
