When we reveal ourselves to our partner and find that this brings healing rather than harm, we make an important discovery— that intimate relationship can provide a sanctuary from the world of facades, a sacred space where we can be ourselves, as we are…
This kind of unmasking— speaking our truth, sharing our inner struggles, and revealing our raw edges— is sacred activity, which allows two souls to meet and touch more deeply.
