A fenced off heart
Reflections on the heart - #9.
We build fences around our hearts to protect them, but in doing so we create distance, and so hurt ourselves in the process.
It is difficult to be vulnerable. So much easier to throw up walls and build fences to keep people at a distance. That way they can't hurt us. The stones they throw fall short and the heart is protected from harm.
But if we don't let people get close, our hearts never change.
And something that never changes is not alive.
