Spiritual Advice in the manner of Elizabeth Gilbert’s “Eat, Pray, Love”
Ms. Dominique tweets: All About “the Naughty Bits”
“People always fall in love with the most perfect aspects of each other's personalities. After all, who wouldn’t? Anybody can love the most wonderful pieces & parts of another person, not to mention the naughty bits.
“But that’s not the best trick. The really good trick is this: Can you accept the exterior flaws too? Can you look at your partner’s physical faults honestly and say, ‘I can fix that — a little plastic surgery would help — but I can work around that. I can make something out of it.’
“Because the really good stuff is always going to be on the outer fleshy surface, and it’s not always going to be pretty and sparkly, but you can work on that. It's that crap down underneath — that fatty tissues & stuff can ruin your happiness forever."
