The walls keep sadness out, but then that means they keep out joy also

Good Morning Friends 💜

When I read this I was like duh………..

Why didn’t I ever think of that?

It only makes sense doesn’t it?

We think we’re protecting ourselves, which essentially we are.

But we’re also keeping ourselves stuck on a certain level.

We can’t get hurt if we don’t truly open up, isn’t that true?

When I learned that I had my own walls in place at first I was in denial. I was like no way, not me! I love wholeheartedly 💜

But it turns out that I was seriously lying to myself. I had grown tremendously, but I still had a lot of learning to do.

You see I can’t be safe and receive love at the same time. Because that’s not how it works when it comes to being seen.

I either show up as myself, or I show up in my armor ready to fight. And sometimes I wasn’t sure which one I wanted to do.

I wanted to be available but at the same time it was really scary. I wanted to learn a new way to love, but my heart was afraid. The scars on it were taking over and controlling me, when I really wanted the love to shine through.

And so my friends I ask you this……..

Are you ready to look inside and ask yourself what’s more important feeling safe or feeling joy?

You can only pick 1💜
