The Bonds We Make

I was reflecting on all the people that I have connected with in my life.  I never remember why or how I made those connections. It can be hard to let people in because people can hurt me when I care deeply enough for them… and I have had people in my past whom have deeply hurt me.  Luckily that number is very low.  You would think that the risk of that deep pain of the loss of connection would keep any of us from making those bonds but it is those bonds that make life worth living.

To my friends… I don’t know why or how I first started to care about you but I deeply care and the risk of you being able to hurt me is worth the love I feel towards you and from you.  Thank you for being my friend and thank you for keeping my heart safe in your hands.  It is very much okay if you accidentally hurt me… it just reminds me how much I care about you and I promise to never hold it against you.  I just appreciate that you have allowed me to be a part of your journey and I will do my best to keep your heart safe as well.
