Jeremiah 29:11

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

To the christian...

...we will go through struggles.
It is important that we don't hide these struggles and weaknesses from other christians and non believers.
Other christians because we need to have people who have the same life goals as confidents. 
Other christians are going to want to help you with your walk, and only when you are open with them can they do so.
Non believers need to know that you have weaknesses because you need to be approachable.
It is intimidating to see someone and think that they may actually be "perfect".
Trust me. They're not. There are just things they aren't telling you.
Those things can become commonalities, which bring the christian and the non christian together.
Through these shared struggles, God's love can be shared.
Stories of how he has pulled one out of the pit of despair and given him a life worth living. A life for God.
Now don't go out and awkwardly start sharing with every person you meet what your weaknesses are, or do.
It's up to you haha. But just keep that in mind. Because it is important.
Don't worry about keeping that "perfect" image. No one expects you to be perfect.
Just be real.
Now I'm not saying to go out and screw around either. Just realize that you can sort out your struggles with someone else, and through that sorting, you will find more about God and his will for your life.
