If You Keep Protecting Your Heart It Is Never Going To Grow

Before you tell yourself that your heart has broken for the last time, before you shutter its chambers and swallow its key, remind yourself that it is a muscle.

Before you tell yourself that your heart could not possibly carry another name within its core, that it would hang too heavily in your chest, that it would weigh you down even more, remind yourself how muscle is made – how it needs weight to strengthen, how it needs pressure to restore.

Before you tell yourself that baggage is a bother, that trying stunts your growth, remember that heartbreak is the most important thing that will happen to you. It will hang like concrete in your bones, it will pile up within your words, but it will never weaken you, it will never cripple your love, for your heart needs weight to rebuild itself, your heart needs weight to grow.
