Imperfections

Intimacy, to me, is all about discovering imperfection and loving not despite, but because of.




The flawed being is the real one. The one I want to know. Real love never comes from bland smooth fearful risk-less sameness, but from the challenge of the individual; it is built on the true revelation of "all things counter, original, spare, strange."

I do agree. It's the imperfections that expose the real human being. But it can be hard sometimes to show your imperfections to the world, fear of rejection is never far away.

I like your boots and your pigeon-toed feet.
