This quote raises my anxiety, just reading it. And if I start to think about it, my anxiety shoots up.
I believe this quote, is about being able to receive love, not about giving love.
I can give love, without allowing anyone close enough to me, to destroy me.
I’ve been destroyed, many times over. By people who claimed to ‘love’ me.
It isn’t going to happen anymore.
Hence, why I am now agoraphobic, choose to deal with few people, allow virtually no-one into my life. My walls of protection are up, fully, they are solid, and I intend for them to stay that way.
But, I do help people every day, people who are suffering. In the capacity I can.
But, from a very needed, safe distance.
I don’t do ‘trust’. Not anymore. Not with people.
