Afraid to let down the walls

16 February, 2003

Not so long ago I had my heart broken and felt pain like I never thought was possible to feel.

I'm not yet over it and feel in my heart that I will never stop loving the guy who broke my heart. But now someone has come into my life offering me the love I crave, but I don't know what to do. I know he would never hurt me, but I'm afraid I might hurt him because of the love I know I will always have for this other person.

I know that I can't dwell on the pain from my last break up or on my feelings for him because nothing will ever come of it, but it is so hard. Why do we always want the ones who hurt us and let the ones who treat us right go? I know that this could be the one to save me and teach me how to love again, if I can find the courage to let him. But I'm afraid. Afraid to open my heart again, afraid to let down these walls that I have built to protect my heart from hurting again.

If anyone has ever been in a situation like this before please, tell me what to do.
