Get Naked in Your Relationship

How comfortable are you getting naked?

It can be scary to present your authentic, stripped-down self to the world, but it will lead to living a happier life. As in life, this is also true in relationships. Without allowing your partner to see the real you, your partner can only love the version you have presented. It will ultimately limit the depth of connection possible, and will greatly reduce the chance of long-term success in the relationship. While it is a frightening thought to be exposed and risk rejection, it will be worth the effort.

"Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else." ~Judy Garland

The first step in allowing others to see you as you are starts with two things: confidence and love. Being confident enough to allow the other to see you naked might be an unnerving proposition, but you will be much better being you with your partner than being someone else. And, equally important, love yourself enough to believe you are worthy of love and affection just the way you are.

When you reach a point where you begin to allow someone to see you as you are, you will be happier. Freeing yourself of the exhausting task of pretending to be someone you are not will be a wonderful feeling.

The level of intimacy and love shared with your partner will be deeper as a result of exposing your authentic self. Allowing your partner to see, and fall in love with the real you means knowing you on a more intimate level. It will most likely lead to your partner opening up to you more as well. The result will be experiencing a much more rewarding, fulfilling relationship.

"Be yourself; everyone else is already taken." ~Oscar Wilde

I’ve been with my husband over 10 years, and this cannot be more true. But what I also glean from this post is that it’s important to get naked in front of myself (err, if that makes any sense). It took me a long time to face, embrace and celebrate the person I am. Not that I was trying to be someone else, but I suppose it’s my getting a little older and wiser that has caused me to be more comfortable and free in who I am. Being honest in who I am also helps me to identify areas where I need change or improvement, which I did not always accept about myself in the past. Thanks for you post today. Writing this comment has been very therapeutic. 🙂
