We all know someone who has a closed heart. I’ve been contemplating about this for awhile now because I’ve got a friend or two or three who seem to have closed themselves off to the love that they deserve. I find it sad because they’re really good eggs.
I don’t even know how to get the conversation started. I know what I want to tell them: After what you’ve been through, maybe you’re afraid of trusting people. You’ve been hurt and disappointed. You’ve placed your faith in the wrong situations and the wrong people.
But anything past that? I’m not quite sure what to say.
The thing is, love doesn’t get any easier as you grow older. It doesn’t get less complicated. It doesn’t get less confusing. It just is, the way it is.
I love these people really and truly, and I know vulnerability is a journey they have to take on their own without my prodding and pushing.
