When you have been hurt in prior relationships, it feels natural to be cautious and guarded so you won’t be hurt again. However, the moment that you put walls up, you also wall off what you want most: friendship, love, deep connection. Without vulnerability you cannot have deeper intimacy Remember that reaching out when you are scared is a tremendous act of courage, but if someone loves you, they will cherish you for taking that risk.
