The Naked Truth by Luisa Tam

Accept your shadow self to keep the love alive in a relationship – don’t hide the dark parts of yourself from your partner

  • Being invested in another person forces us to hold a mirror up to ourselves, but it can be challenging to accept or reveal our faults – or our ‘shadow self’
  • More often than not, people try to mask who they truly are when in a relationship and they feel lonely as a result because they are abandoning their true selves
