If only I had....



...kept the wall erected around my heart and played it safe, I wouldn't be reeling from an unexpected reaction and feeling this pain. 


Pain that I caused inadvertently which has brought me such deep pain and sorrow. Tears fall without cause from my swollen, puffy eyes. They have lost their sparkle.

As for me, I will go back to playing it safe so as not to inflict this kind of pain on myself or others again. That's not living, you say? Neither is living in sorrow's shadow...

So sorry to hear about this pain you are experiencing. It doesn't matter how used to pain we become, it hurts like the first time every time. Praying for healing for your heart.
