There is something I ask for in my life; the truth. And I ask for it in realms of discomfort.
I’ve asked Katy to let me know when I’m being an asshole. I believe an unspoken element of my marriage with Liz is a dedication to knowing the truth—and she has always been one of my most challenging critics.
Within the last 24 hours, I’ve heard I was acting like an asshole in a particular instance. And I was told my recent comedy set wasn’t that funny.
And you know what? I’m glad I heard it—’cause it gives me reason to dig in and dig deeper. Certainly not easy to stand in those fires and feel the burn…
But I’m grateful to have people in my life that love me enough and are brave enough to tell me the hard truths.
By the way, Liz did say I was improving… which means I must have really sucked at the beginning. 🙂
