You try to protect yourself from these things but our need to love and be love outweighs the chances of being hurt.
Some fall and vow never to try again, some try again with major resistance and restrictions.
Can’t hide from it though, its the beginning and end to life. We were born in it and we leave the world with it.
Hurt is only one side effect that may occur but is an effect that leaves a lasting impression on the heart and mind.
So instead of loving openly, it seems like we have to love protectively.
Love with conditions, love with fears, love with broken trust, love with lies, love with pain, love with smiles, love is… insane sometimes.
