Isnt love the most powerful thing that can be used against someone or is it vulnerability?

  • May 30 2012: When we allow ourselves to become vulnerable to someone, we lay our precious pearls onto the ground for the other to honor and embrace, or to ridicule and destroy. When we give someone our heart in love, we put our entire being in their hands, fully trusting that they will honor and embrace us. Therefore, I would say both can be costly places to go, one could cost us our pearls which would pain our entire being, but the other, love, if rejected, costs us our far more valuable soul. Therefore, use wisdom, share cautiously, but also remember that without risk there is no reward.
