It's easy to cage one's heart after experiencing so much pain, with the potential to turn it cold. Don't let that happen - there is no harm in guarding your heart, but closing it up altogether will assure a cold heart and a loveless life.
Unfortunately we learn a little late down the path that most things that we worry about and give our utmost intentions to dont really give us comfort . Stopping and putting things in perspective of fond memories and happiness doesnt happen often enough.
Life doesn't have to be perfect to be wonderful... Thank God! Luckily happiness is a choice and not a situation. We get to choose how things effect us. That is entirely way too much power to give the enemy... Don't you think? ;) - Steven Valentine
