Showing my true, real self is hard. Bullied, teased, made fun of for who you really were is hard to come from. That's why people put up walls, barriers, masks, to hide behind. They're afraid that people will do it again, just like the people before.
Just another day in paradise. When the kids are screaming, the dishwasher is flooding, dinner is burning, and you step on a Lego, THAT is the moment that you will be thankful that you married for love and friendship before passion and romance.
