The person who sent me this email is one of the people who is on a mission to "heal my heart" and make me see the good that I may be missing. The sentiment was sweet, but I will never - EVER - let anyone close enough to hurt me again. Those days are long gone. Even so, I will love Brothers until the day I day even though I don't understand why love was/is never reciprocated.
This is precisely why, before it's over, you are going to find the perfect man to live and grow old with! I can just feel it.
The man you will have will indeed be able to get close to you, simply because the way in which he loves you will not allow him to hurt you. And once you recognize that ... and that in him ... it will be all systems go!
It's not that you will be keeping him at arm's distance, it's that he will be at arm's distance because that's as close as he can get to you. And that will be close enough for him.
Until one day, those arms will just slide around his neck instead.
Very beautifully said. I love it. Gives hope for all the people who hold someone that they want to be close to so far away. Just think one day those same arms pushing him/her away will be pulling them closer. Hum gives you something to think about
