I think that a great coach/mentor or friend is really great at seeing through us. And that is really want I want to talk about today is honesty and transparency in relationships.
I know in my own relationship, it’s been a growing edge for me to feel safe enough to tell the truth of how I am feeling. And the more and more Jenna and I are together, the more I love her and she loves me, the more the crap comes up. Because, let’s face it, when we Love, we also get scared because we are scared of being hurt. And so the deeper we Love, the more fear comes up in the beginning.
One of the fundamental skills I’ve learned from Laurie is just telling the truth. Not in a manipulative or mean way, but in an honest and loving way. One of the things that Laurie has helped to inspire in me with my relationship with Jenna is a sense that it is okay for me to tell the truth. As I’ve been feeling and acting into that, it’s been amazing to me how much my truth I either hold back, or cover up with a jab.
There is a little boy inside of me who is scared of being hurt, and sometimes it’s easier for me to just be a little sarcastic or a little insensitive, than it is for me to just share my truth. But as Jenna and I are growing together, the Love that is within me that is trying to find her, is making it’s way out.
It’s scary to really admit that you Love someone. It’s scary to admit your feelings and innermost thoughts. It’s scary to ask for what you want, when the possibility of the other person running is there. But, if we want to live an authentic and love filled life, it’s also necessary.
