Some of my favorite people in the world are the ones who wear their faults proudly instead of trying to hide them. Yes, maybe they end up sticking their foot in their mouth every once in a while. Maybe they end up looking stupid, or rude, or ungrateful. But it's those people who show their faults who also show their humanity.
I don't know about you, but I'd rather be friends with someone real and flawed and human, than someone who wants me to believe that they're perfect.
What about you? Are you afraid to let the ugly side show or do you run out of the house flapping it behind you, banners waving?
