To Love is to Be Vulnerable

168905_485930874210_6256203_n“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round 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. To love is to be vulnerable.”

C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

  1. There is a teacher in all we experience,though there are times we feel less like learning,each time we succeed there is failure,pain is a part in all that we learn,as with love there is…….. if it was easy we would never experienced the all of life. I believe that it’s a journey to which there isn’t any other way
    God I wish there was a way another the pain but there isn’t
