Sometimes in life you experience hurt and pain at the hands of someone you love and trust. That feeling can leave you empty and bitter inside. It becomes difficult to trust again, let alone open your heart to love.
But we have to learn to forgive to move forward with our lives. Staying stuck in that same place and holding on to the grudge and pain of the past inhibits our growth. Progression towards a better future becomes stagnant, and life is meaningless.
It may be hard to trust again, but you have to learn to open your heart to the possibility of love. You have to learn to give someone new the chance to prove themselves, and not hold on to your past. Sometimes we take the past into new relationships with us, without giving the new person the chance to love us.
Release the hurt, the pain, and the past. Learn to forgive and forget. Although you may proceed with caution, open your heart to someone new and trust them to take care of you. We are all perfectly flawed and have our shortcomings because we're only human. So don't hold every little thing they do over their heads, but separate your past hurts from today's disappointments and judge fairly.
Above all learn to love yourself again, because only then can you learn to open your heart to love someone else, and allow them to love you.
