No one will ever know you completely. If you are living and growing, you're a work in progress and are a slightly different person each day. But it's great to keep you lover informed of your progress, as you come to understand it and be able to express it, so they know who they are dealing with as much as possible.
well said Magdlyn, my philosophy also... there is nothing more bonding and real than being who you are as honestly as possible, that includes the not so nice stuff too.
