“A charm invests a face
Imperfectly beheld,—
The lady dare not lift her veil
For fear it be dispelled.

But peers beyond her mesh,
And wishes, and denies,—
Lest interview annul a want
That image satisfies.”

― Emily Dickinson

    1. That’s the hardest part I guess for most people: being themselves with someone they value the most. I know for a fact that most couple are not themselves around their spouses. It already begun in the courting period when they tried to impress somebody showing only the best sides and once deep in the relationship they continue the charade for the fear of being unloved and being rejected.
