All of this was created to protect myself from the feeling of being scared. I felt that if I didn’t let anyone get too close to me I wouldn’t be vulnerable, taken advantage of, or abandoned.
Fear has been running my life: fear to love, fear of failure, fear of criticism, fear of being deceived. Yet I was the deceiver.
Thank you for helping me to see this and to discreate the fear. I now know how it feels to open my space to others. I love the feeling. I feel happy. Feeling love toward others is a beautiful part of life, not something that is forced or scary.
