Vulnerable

.

.

Fear,

anxiety,

awe,

angst,

confusion,

that bad feeling

that it is going to hurt.

.

“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

 

Love is helping someone love themselves.
