let your walls down.
- the outer layer of something that is hallow; build for protection, security.
Everyone is afraid to get their walls broken down, whether they admit it to themselves or not. People who enter your life may come with a smile, but inside we can never really tell if their intentions are really pure and true so that is what makes it even harder to let them in. This post is to encourage you, whoever YOU are that it is okay for you to let your guards down.
Here is why:
EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT.
Just because Harry or Suzy broke your heart does not mean that the next person that comes along will. Do not harden your heart or in other words, do not build your walls so high that no one else can climb over it.
TAKE A CHANCE!
It’s okay to be shy about it. It’s definitely okay to be a little closed off, but not too much to the point where the person feels like they can’t get to know you.
BE HONEST AND STRAIGHTFORWARD.
Let the person know what you stand for and what your intentions are. Doing this will make you feel a lot better and it will be that much more liberating!
TAKE YOUR TIME.
Moving fast is never the right decision. Get to know what the other person is about and test them to see if they really are what you want.
Don’t let fear overtake your life.
The fear of rejection
The fear of being alone
The fear of failure
The fear of being taken advantage off
The fear of LETTING GO
Choose to be happy. It’s okay to trust someone. Nobody likes to be fully exposed and vulnerable, but taking the step to being self-aware of what you have been through and fully accepting it for what it is helps you move forward. It is always scary stepping out our comfort zones, but you will never know if that person or that thing you want to do will be the best experience of your life until you try. It’s better to know than to stay unknowing. It gets better with TIME. Good Luck. xxx
