Heart Sayings:
Romantic and Cute Friendship Quotes About The Heart (...cont)

“Two souls with but a single thought,
Two hearts that beat as one.”
~ Friedrich Halm (1806-1871)

"We start as naive and innocent babes, full of faith in others and just wanting to love and be loved with open arms. Many of us, however, soon learn that people are far from perfect. Some injure us unknowingly. Others may even do so intentionally.

The result? This can cause us to "toughen up" - where we decide that we're not going to be hurt like that again. So we never allow ourselves to be fully vulnerable or trusting. We put on an unseen armour that we believe is going to protect and buffer us from future emotional pain.

In actual fact, we sentence ourselves to a life of contradiction... a life that will never fully allow us to experience the joys of truly loving another or being loved by another. While we desperately long for a genuine deep and all-consuming love, we're fearful of what could go wrong. Thus, we sabbotage any wonderful relationship that comes our way. We don't open up or we find reason for the relationship to end, thus remaining safe and unscathed by love.

Perhaps you can relate? If so, why not let the sun's rays begin to melt the icicles around your heart so that you, when the time's right, can allow yourself to experience the gift of fully giving and receiving love?"
