We protect ourselves from intense emotions, we hide our hearts behind walls to feel safe — but the truth is, by shielding ourselves from being hurt we also shield ourselves from love.

Having our heart naked in front of true love would feel almost unbearable, so unsafe and risky — so we hide our feelings, we escape from speaking the truth, we do everything to maintain our dignity. But the truth is, opening our hearts to give love to the one that truly matters is actually the path to receiving this love.
