Everyone in their lives feels pain and the sorrow that accompanies living.
But where does one draw the line between opening their hearts to another person, and in doing so giving them a piece of their own soul, versus keeping yourself closed off to these possibilities, these feelings, and walking away, often without truly acknowledging them and simply blocking them out of your psyche.
Feelings can be controlled, through mastery of self, but they cannot truly be ignored. One cannot withstand the full force of one’s feelings without clogging a spiritual artery. It is not natural. If you feel something for someone, then they should know. Unfortunately the world that we live is does not work within this idealistic framework.
