Are your walls built to protect your heart? Your soul? Your person? Did you leave a door? Window? Or is it solid?

I would have to say, I have become a master level masonry expert over the years. We go through ups and downs in our lives and many of us start building walls thinking we will protect us from future hurts.

How has that worked for you?

For me, not so well. For some reason, I felt that I could build the walls and control everything that happened, protect myself from all harm. I have now learned that is not how it works. Instead, I feel my walls have blocked me from living and being truly happy.

As I start to remove the walls, I am finding new relationships with some amazing people. Some people I have been around for years, but are just now starting to get to know them; others are new relationships that have just happened and are pretty exciting.
