To have loving relationships keep your heart open. Be willing to be vulnerable. You do not need to build walls that shut people out. Walls imprison you more than keep you safe. Take down the walls that you may put up between you and others. For walls are obstacles to love. Practice keeping your heart open, even when you are in difficult situations. Doing so awakens your heart center.
When you are willing to be vulnerable, you have nothing to defend. You do not need to apologize, explain yourself, or put distance between yourself and others. You accept yourself as you are. You do not try to live up to an image of perfection so others will think better of you. You stop feeling inferior or superior to others. You are aware of the strength that comes from letting others see that you are not perfect. You recognize that you are lovable, worthy, and wonderful just as you are…….
