Will You Open the Door?
Love is like a door.
It has been said that, “the door to pain and rejection is the same door to love.”
“If you choose to open it only halfway and share only half of yourself, then you also receive ‘half’ love. It is because the other person can only love what he or she knows.
But if you share your whole being, even with the fear of being insulted or rejected, you are assured that the person who will love you, loves the whole of you–the good & the bad—but loves you the same.”
One cannot and must not assume more than to what he or she chooses to share.
