Becoming really close with someone requires give and take; most of all, it requires time. To build a strong relationship, letting your guard down is key. Revealing who you really are, being that vulnerable, can be terrifying for many people; however, practiced responsibly and wisely, revelation can bring rewards that outweigh the risks.
Connecting with someone involves trusting yourself, so practice being confident and taking risks. If you're in an intimate, safe relationship with someone, try exposing different parts of your personality or divulging small secrets. When you show yourself to others, it builds a safe environment for them to do the same. Together, this could be very liberating.
Tonight before bed, offer your partner a deeper look into your heart. Don't be too afraid to let him know you more truly.
Bette Midler said it best: You've got to give a little, take a little and let your poor heart break a little, that's the story of, that's the glory of love
