When you’ve been abused, mistreated, used and dumped
It takes courage, the willingness to forgive
And the desire to live again
To give out your heart another time.
That’s why we must never exert pressure on people
To open up their hearts to us.
We deserve openness and genuineness in every relationship
But we must give people the time to change,
To heal and to willingly open up again.
Trying to force it out of them can be counter productive
NO matter how much you love them and want to be with them
Just be gentle enough to let them loosen up naturally and at a pace
That is comfortable for them.
They may really be in love,
But still needing time to get on the rails
Do not be impatient when they seem reticent
Let the rose unfold naturally.
Love and Blessing, Gretiana
