“Pretending to be perfect is the perfect way to not develop a relationship.” — Donald Miller, Scary Close
Full disclosure: I’m disinclined to short reads lately, so I haven’t yet read Scary Close, but I think I might. If nothing else, than for this quote.
I mean, with our culture’s obsession with perfection – at least, cosmetically speaking – could our world be headed in any direction other than away from building real relationships?
And who takes the time to actually stop and do that work?
The idea that the gap is widening between those who are willing to risk being honest and real and …. pure …. and those who won’t or can’t drop the act is a bit unsettling.
But it’s nothing we can’t change.
