“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. 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.” – ― C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves
But locking away your heart just so it would not get hurt anymore is not the answer. Open it up for new possibilities, new love and care. Only then the pain will be replaced with new found love <3
It can be hard to do. You need to find the power within and find yourself again.
