Bare Bones

An excerpt from my current read, Sophie's Choice:
"She was so chaotically in love with Nathan that it was like dementia, and it is more often than not the person one loves from whom one withholds the most searing truths about one's self, if only out of the very human motive to spare groundless pain."
I think one of the greatest challenges of adulthood is trusting that the people you love will still be with you when all your scares are laid out before them.

But, then again, I think that's what makes love so valuable, enjoyable and rewarding - that we are able to embrace the people we care for, regardless of their "searing truths."

It just requires faith, that those whom you care for want to know you as deeply as you want to know them.
