Feel the fear and do it anyway, relationship edition

Sometimes it's very scary to consider revealing your feelings and fears. You know, those parts of yourself you aren't so proud of and those things you have figured out are the potential weak spots for keeping it all tickety-boo with this sweetheart?

This is that terror territory where life can get harder, things could turn out to be dealbreakers, all kinds of uncomfortableness could arise and it's just so easy and tempting to stay in the safe zone.

At some point to get things better and stronger and more rewarding with a partner you must venture out of what feels pleasant and predictable. Have some deeper conversations. Share some fears. Expose some vulnerabilities. Talk about what you really want, what you really really want.

There are levels of intimacy you can't fall up into; you have to climb.

It's worth it.
