We all experience them at some point in our lives. Whether it's a romantic breakup, the end of a friendship, or even a sense of betrayal from someone close to us, heartbreak can be devastating. We feel like our world has been turned upside down, everything we know is different now, and we're not sure who we are anymore.
But what if our hearts are closed to everyone after the heartbreak? What if we never let anyone in again? Wouldn't that be worse than being hurt sometimes?
Being open to love—even when it hurts—is an incredible way to live a full life. The alternative is to protect yourself from being hurt again by completely closing off your heart (been there). But isn't that living life without ever taking any risks? It's like playing it safe all the time instead of taking chances and making mistakes along the way—not only does this lead to boredom and monotony (which isn't living at all), but it also means missing out on some pretty incredible things.
