To love is to be vulnerable

People go to counselling because they are lonely and desire connection, but struggle with the vulnerability that connection requires

To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love any thing and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure at keeping it intact you must give it to no one’s, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies or luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket of self. But in that casket- safe,dark, motionless, airless–it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.
