a little muriatic acid goes a long way. it gets rid of the dirt.
but you need to flush it out with water.
or you’d have no more pipes to clean.
i think the same goes for relationships. you need to get the truth out. but you need to balance it with love.
as they say,
truth without love destroys,
love without truth deceives.
it is such a blessing to see God’s hand at work in shaping who we are. ^_^
