Sometimes life can be very hard. Unfortunately, not everyone is
nice and there are some who will hurt you because they want something
you have or perhaps just because they can. It happens to most of us
at one time or another. Knowing that it happens never makes it any
easier when you are the victim.
It's fairly common to withdraw after a heartache, to retreat into
a space that feels safe and secure and to avoid the possibility of
being hurt once again. Doing just that is fine for a while.
Curling up at home with the covers over your head will work for
a while, but sooner or later one must face the world once again.
I have spent my time at home curled up under the covers.
I have healed my wounds.
My heart has stopped aching.
I am ready to come out of my safe place ...
and face the world once again ....
yet being careful, because ....
once bitten, twice shy.
