After you have been hurt, it’s pretty much a natural reaction to put up walls so you can keep other people from getting in. It’s like you get to a point where you would rather keep people out than invite people in. It’s not easy opening yourself back up after a failed relationship. The more you think about the past and where you went wrong with other people, the more you continue to stay stagnant which ends up slowing down your healing process. But having said all of that, you won’t get far in life keeping your heart closed for a very long time. You will end up blocking your own blessings because you couldn’t let go of the past. You will end up turning away the most loyal and supportive people in your corner because you are still connected to what someone did to you years ago. Funny thing about life is, the very things that we are scared of, could also end up being the things that lead us straight towards our deliverance. Healing takes time, I understand that. Just don’t allow yourself to become a person who hoards every painful and negative thing that happens to you for the rest of your life. You still have a lot of living to do and a lot of love to give.
