Opening My Heart, It’s Scary

Life has ups and downs and the fibromyalgia comes with ups and downs all its’ own. It has I think been one of the two reasons I have been reluctant to open my heart to love.

I know everyone has issues and stuff, but I guess it’s only now that I have really been able to come to full terms with the past, the hurt, and accept the ups and downs of the fibromyalgia, just adjust to them. That’s great, and I am great I have. Now comes the trusting another person in a few ways. First, trusting they wont trample on my heart, which I know to really embrace love, I have to do that. Second, trusting they will be secure enough etc… and love me enough in the relationship once it is solid to be okay with the ups and downs of the fibromyalgia. Third, trusting they will be supportive of who I am holistically as a person and my goals. I know I also have to do the same, get that.

Scary, this entrusting yourself to another and opening your heart, spirit, soul to another, but I think the journey, all of it, with the right person, worth it. That’s the key, with the right person, your twin flame or soulmate, true twin flame or soulmate on every level.
