“Ummmm…was that you?”
No, I’m not talking about the unleaded kind of gas. I’m talking about the embarassing kind…
How mortified were you the first time you farted in front of your significant other? It’s like a strange relationship rite of passage, I guess….followed by mortification, embarassed laugher, and finally the hope that he or she will someday let you live it down.
So what does it cost you to show this “flawed” side of yourself to someone? It’s tough keeping your best foot forward all of the time…eventually the everyday you is going to creep out.
When you really dig down deep on the farting issue, at the very crux of it is trusting your partner with the real you and getting comfortable with one another. Eventually you are stripped bare of your perfect date outfits, your well-timed charming stories and sleeping with makeup on and you have to reveal your real self. Doing so can be scary. But the good news is that ultimately everybody farts and everyone is flawed.
So embrace yourself….flaws and all. He or she is going to see them eventually whether you like it or not. So, you can now stop blaming the dog…. ;)
So….are you afraid to show the real you? Share your concerns or ask a question….
