Fit like Jeans
Trying on jeans----------->
Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully around with hobbies and little luxuries; Avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket-safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. The alternative to tragedy, or at least to the risk of tragedy is damnation.~~C.S. Lewis
This was quoted in a book I'm reading called "The Reason for God" by a pastor named Timothy Keller. He actually has a church he started in Manhattan that has become a pretty happenin' place!
Anyway, this is an issue that I've struggled with a lot. I remember telling my friend that I fall (in like, love) hard, but the funny thing is, is then I get really scared and take it all back or just harden my heart to relationships. I don't want to do that anymore. I met a guy I like. I don't know what he feels for me, but he's the kind of guy that I don't want to put a wall up with, and I found myself doing that the second (and last) time I saw him. My counselor told me that I should look at getting to know men as checking out if we fit. Like jeans, I guess. k. That's all. I'm tired. Need to be at work at 6:45 am and it's 10:15 pm. I've been running all week and can't wait for a day off.
Love to all!
