Do you allow your partner to really see you?
I mean not just physically but emotionally as well. For them to see your weaknesses, anger, pain, fears and vulnerability?
Some couples, both men and women, only allow their partner to see one mask and one side of them. In some ways they think it keeps them safe, protected and loved.
Many people believe that their other side makes them weak. But our fears, emotions, pain and vulnerabilities, as well as our hopes, strengths dreams, joy and happiness is what makes us truly human.
If you are hiding a part of your from your partner you are not allowing yourself to be fully present to your partner or yourself. By allowing yourself to be fully seen allows greater and deeper connection and from this place a deeper sense of love.
If you want to be more intimate with your partner physically, emotiomally and sexually start by beginning to show all aspects of you. However before you do this you first have to also learn how to be okay being you.
From this place you have the ability to create a truly loving, joyful, fulfilling and dynamic relationship with yourself and your partner.
Here's a beautiful quote I want to share
“To be fully seen by somebody, then, and be loved anyhow - this is a human offering that can border on miraculous.” Elizabeth Gilbert
My first experiences of being venerable was during my teenage years and twenties. In fact I didn't cope with it very well. I wore my vulnerability like body armour, no one could get close to me or see who I truly was. On the outside I wore a mask that was happy, carefree, and loved my life. However on the inside I was hiding a secret that I was depressed, lost and anxious.
This impacted my relationships as I moved from one unhappy relationship to the next. About ten years ago I looked at my life and realised I had two options, one was to continue down the path I was on and to be honest it looked rather lonely. Or I could decide to begin to transform my life and through many different trainings, retreats, and workshops I began to experience the real me and realised that I was actually okay being me.
As I was more honest with myself and others my whole world opened up and transformed and from this place I met John my soul mate, best friend and partner and co-founder of the Heart of Relationships. Who love me for me being me.
