The thing about trying to be "perfect" is, it is a never ending job.
It is exhausting and you never "get there."
Being "perfect" makes people go away from you.
Being real brings people closer to you.
Being real is about being honest with yourself and others...very honest.
The more honest we are, the more vulnerable we become...showing your vulnerability shows your strength, not weakness.
Being real brings people into your heart.
It also allows YOU into THEIR heart.
