Being “dirty” is the willingness and the striving to share the truth of all that you are, even when it is not “perfect” or “pretty” and allowing others to do the same.
Lasting and mutually beneficial relationships and community are built on the development and continuation of truth, trust, and a sense of belonging. None of us are perfect; there is no perfect! We are each beautifully complex, full of empathy and ego, seeking connection and self preservation, and within each of us there is both love and judgment. True depth and evolution within relationships and humanity come from the freedom and the bravery of being yourself, expressing your individuality, and from the collective honoring of each human being’s uniqueness.
