Probably the thing that makes me most uncomfortable. Especially when it comes to relationships. Which generally make me feel uncomfortable anyway.|
Part of my plan to "Keep It Great In '08" definitely involves reevaluating how I behave in relationships. Generally... not so great, actually. I mean, not so great in terms of "functional" and "healthy". Hell, even admitting that I am involved with someone is a big deal. (Usually because I'm involved with someone that, for any number of reasons, I probably shouldn't be.)
I recently reconnected with a friendly ghost from my past. Now, if I didn't have a history with this guy and know enough about him to be able to say with complete certainty that he is a man of true character, he'd definitely be flying some red flags. Except that he's a stickler for accountability.
The thing about him that has always struck me is how honest and straightforward he is. About everything. Even when it's uncomfortable. And especially when it's necessary. He doesn't let me get away with being shady or less than forthright. Especially about my intentions. He forces my hand and what's more, he makes me want to be the best version of myself.
And there is no person on earth I would rather be uncomfortable with.
