Love And Romantic Quotes Biography
"Sometimes we allow the more painful expereiences of life to buffet us around a bit too much. We seek to protect ourselves from future pain and thus, without even really being consciously aware of what we are doing, we give up some of our vulnerability, some of our tenderness, some of our childlikenss... and in the process we become less of who we were created to be.
Then one day, someone special comes along who seems to make the risk of being hurt worthwhile. They provide the catalyst for our process of futher self-discovery. In the process of spending time together, we feel the icicles around our heart melting away... we, like litte children again, want to believe, want to experience, want to give and share. And thus, without even really being consciously aware of what we are doing, we allow that speical someone to gently lead us back to ourselves... and way beyond."
