I learned something today.
I learned that my heart is fragile.
There are people in my life that have more access to my heart than others, and to me, that is how it should be. Things go bad when those people don't realize how much power they have over my heart. I can't help but to love these people unconditionally. They sometimes take advantage of me or hurt me. Was it on purpose? I sometimes can't tell. I like to assume that these people would never do that to me. It happens though. We are all human and we all make mistakes. Does the mistake have to be at the cost of my emotions and relationships?
I need to do what is best for me, and to protect my heart. I don't want to harden my heart, just protect it. I pray that God will show me how to do that with ease and love.
