I wondered what happened …

I wondered what happened when you offered yourself to someone,
and they opened you, only to discover you were not the gift
they expected and they had to smile and nod and say thank you all the same.

— Jodi Picoult

do you suppose this is the fear that keeps us so guarded with each other? why one so rarely offers her whole self? that upon emotional inspection, to the object of our affection we are the object of his imagination disappointed.
