I'm guessing people can relate to this.
Sometimes because of a lack of stewardship on our part for our hearts...drastically unwise decisions. Other times because people fail us...trampling our hearts because of their own fallenness.
Do you ever wonder if you can set those battle scars aside to welcome all sorts of new relationships into your life? To not suspect ill intentions or using. To instead trust honorable character and generosity.
I don't think it's impossible. Goodness, this ever-hoping optimist has to believe it!! But wow...it's interesting how ready our self-protecting defenses become...even when there's no indication of threat...just new territory.
It's not my nature to stay under the boot of old wounds. Not anymore, that is. So, here's to wrestling through!
