Take a minute to read this post… learn to share your imperfection instead of trying to hide them…then just try to remember next time you struggle to understand somebody… they just haven’t read this post or learned to value their imperfections! Wouldn’t communication be so much easier! Thanks Kamal at Boundless Blessings.
