You have to be fine with being by yourself. The world we are living in today, has more people out here trying to use and abuse your heart, than people who genuinely want to be let inside of it. Above all else guard your heart because everything you do flows from it. There is nothing wrong with you taking your time letting people in. Everyone doesn’t have the best intentions. Some people want to waste your time. Some people want to steal your love and parts of your soul. Some people are just looking for someone else to pass their pain onto. Unfortunately when you open up your heart for people, you open yourself up to receiving all kinds of energy, both good and bad. Screen people before you let them emotionally stay with you. Everyone doesn’t deserve to have a room in your heart.
