No Walls Here

via Daily Prompt: Construct

As many times as I’ve loved and lost love, I still have not built a wall around my heart. Should I construct a wall or should I stay open as I do, and just trust the process? Divorce did not break me, nor did it make me hate men (smile) or sour on love. Breakups may temporarily derail me emotionally, but I usually come back stronger and hopefully, a little smarter. One thing I have never stopped doing is being afraid to love again. I may be a little more cautious, try to take some things I learned from my previous relationships and apply them to new ones. But most times when I fall in love, I’m all in and let the chips fall where they may. I’m not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing but as much as I question how I should approach a new relationship or as much advice as I’m given, I know I stay true to myself. I choose love, every time, whether it chooses me or  not, in the end.

About geminilvr

I have been through many relationships in my life, most long term, and they have all shaped who I am in some way. I try to find humor through the pain and heartbreak and find the strength to do it all over again. Navigating the dating waters in my forties isn't easy but hey what in life is? My blog is sprinkled with past relationships, current status and thoughts on it all! I hope my experiences make you smile, laugh or cry along with me and relate to the complexity that is life, my life, perfectly imperfect.

  1. It is good that you can keep your heart open. I have struggled in the past and still do at times. Bitterness would like to seep in and harden my heart. But we do miss out when we wall ourselves off from life and love. Beautiful to read your thoughts my friend 🙂
