Some of us are single by choice and others by circumstance but there are many people out there that go to great lengths and extreme measures to GUARD their heart. They have made a conscious decision to shield themselves in an attempt to thwart off pain, disappointment, abandonment or betrayal. In their eyes they are protecting themselves from further damage and shoring up their most vulnerable bits and pieces. They are taking control and defending their territory in an attempt to stay SAFE.
The reality is…SAFE is a lonely place. You not only shield yourself from pain but from LOVE as well. Nothing can penetrate that reinforced skin. Love is something that has to flow. The more you allow it to flow into your heart the more it is able to flow from you. To experience love, You have to share it.
This Valentine’s Day, rethink that emotional chastity belt. Be open to love and love all you can.
I LOVE each and every one of you
