It's okay to be vulnerable. We love, and we lose. We may give ourselves to someone, but get nothing back. We get hurt. This pain leaves cracks in our heart, but it reveals how we feel: How deeply we hurt; how deeply we love. When we open back up to someone again, these cracks are revealed, but we can see each other for whom we really are. And sometimes, this person will be ready to accept what we want to give. It's okay to open ourselves up to somebody--to give a piece of us. When we open our hearts, we let love in. Our cracks will not be mended, but the amount of love and light that will seep through the broken pieces is greater than if you had never hurt before. Always take a chance.
