The truth is, we're all afraid of getting hurt. Some of us just deal with it differently than others.
Some of us convince ourselves we don't care.
Others isolate themselves.
A couple of us push the other person away.
And there are those who hurt others in an attempt to prevent it from happening to them.
But you know what? You've got to take that chance. Because all of us WILL get hurt and all of us will have BEEN hurt at some point in our lives. So what's the point in trying to prevent what we know will happen? Let yourself live. Don't be afraid to be involved.
