We seek love, but the fear and vulnerability that comes with it can be frightening and often paralyzing. As we begin to feel, we slowly peel back the layers, exposing more of ourselves. While this is exhilarating and energizing, we are also unprotected. Uncomfortable in a defenseless state, we may sabotage situations or shut down to safeguard our sensitive side. But during this time, we should remain open that much more. After all, what can really be taken from us? We are not limited in the amount of caring and sharing we can do. The abundance of the heart is endless.
