Checking for Blind Spots
Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.
Proverbs 15:22

Have you ever marveled at the fact that people can remain unaware of certain character flaws and relational issues when they’re quite clear to almost everyone who knows them?  Have you ever cringed at the likelihood that you too have issues that you’re not aware of?

These are called “blind spots.”  We all have them, so we all need the help of others in learning to see them.

If you’re married, there’s probably nobody more equipped to help you locate and constructively address your blind spots than your spouse.  Furthermore, there’s no relationship that stands to gain more for having done so.  If you’re not married, find a friend to give permission to talk to you honestly about your blind spot.

Love can be warm and fuzzy, but sometimes it’s hard. . . it’s tough. Just remember—it’s still love.

“We deceive ourselves when we fancy that only weakness needs support.  Strength needs it far more.” - Anne Sophie Swetchine (1782-1857)
