Getting close to someone can be scary. It means you’re taking your walls down and allowing yourself to be vulnerable. There are many things that can happen in our life that makes us guarded.
Before you take that step you can become more withdrawn. You get nervous. Will exposing yourself be used against you? Thrown in your face? It’s easy to say no and push yourself away and you loose a lot of people that way. You then find yourself alone and you can tell yourself you don’t care. That you’re fine y yourself but deep down you’re not.
If you’re ready to share that one something or everything. Go for it. Will it hurt? It may do but we don’t know what will happen until it happens. That’s the thing it’s the leap you’ve got to take. You could end up building that wall back up but even taller. Or this will be the person that accepts you for everything you are and things are just easy and amazing.
It’s easy to stay in your comfort zone. It’s easy to shy away. What’s not easy is carrying all that weight on your shoulders. Take some of that load off. Take a chance. There is that someone for everyone… at least somewhere. It may be a friend or lover. Don’t push them away if they’re willing to pull you in. (I remind myself that everyday).
