I’m not perfect. And though that would seem obvious, I’ve spent a lifetime trying to do everything right. From my hair to my grades in school, everything always had to be in place. I tried to make sure I never had to be corrected because I simply couldn’t handle it. I have wasted time pursuing the impossible and in the moments when I have failed, I realize that I still carry the shame that comes with not living up to your own hype.
Too often we only think of intimacy as sex. But honestly if that’s all we see as intimacy many of us have it wrong because so many don’t even treat sex as an intimate experience.

But the other day when I spoke as a part of the UPPN mixer and conversation on love and relationships, another form of intimacy was touched on – vulnerability.
