As Adele said in her song Hiding my Heart Away "I can't spend my whole life hiding my heart away." We shouldn't emotionally cut ourselves off from others just because we've had our hearts ripped to shreds; We have to learn to be cautious with our hearts; But to give people a chance....Even when we're scared to.
i love my life, i love my accomplishments, i love my partner, i love my family, i love my friends and i wouldn't trade who i am, who i have in my life or what i have for anything. it might annoy some people (and i hope it does - but if you spent time creating a life you loved you wouldn't be concerned with mine in the first place) but that is their problem, not mine :)
best of grumpy cat...I love him hahaha
