"Getting Real"

I sometimes think that being “real” with each other is overrated. After all, our authentic selves contain our worst as well as our best. On the other hand, if we are not who we truly and fully are, what is left for us to be with each other? It takes courage to be who we really are. -  Rev. Terry Sims
