“Those who have been wounded greatly, are also those who are capable of loving greatly.” – Joyce, itakeoffthemask.com
We can’t love unless we allow the other person to enter into the very depths of our hearts. To allow them in, we are also allowing ourselves to be vulnerable, and in being vulnerable, we become open to pain.
Those who knew great suffering from loving are those who are capable of opening up their hearts. There is nothing to be ashamed of in being heart broken for as long as you know that you have tried your very best to love.
