I think it is fair to say that almost all of us are searching for situations, for ways, or for people that make us feel good and fully alive.
And, many times, in trying desperately to find that which we believe will save us and make us feel, we unwittingly or selfishly hurt, even devastate, others.
Oftentimes, we hurt those who least deserve it.
When we connect with others, a crushed and disappointed heart may be the price we pay. It is always a gamble.
But choosing to entwine our lives with others, to connect, always, always, always comes with the potential to be a sucker of emotional warfare.
I know this intimately.
You probably do too.
