A guarded woman doesn’t jump into love until you show her it’s okay to fall.
Don’t build the wall so high that possibility can’t get in, but don’t make it so accessible that toxicity does.
The kind of guy to make the guarded girl finally fall in love feels safe, and she hates that at first, because she’s so used to falling for people who make her feel daring, like she’s taking an adventurous risk by giving them a chance.
You choose to let go when she’s fighting to hold on. You hurt her because you’re just as scared as she is.
This is what happens when the girl who hoped for more is broken, when she feels stupid for choosing to love someone who never wanted to love her back.
She appears confident but if you really got to know her to the core of who she is with a simple touch you’ll see her shake.
She comes off as being cold and insensitive, but I promise, she’s not. You see, when someone loves so immensely deep, to ultimately get their heart broken, everything begins to shift.
Broken, she knows what it means to suffer. But out of the depths of her suffering, she has come to understand love. And her guarded heart waits for the one who understands it too.
I push you away because I can’t see how someone like you could love someone like me. I don’t believe it. I see my flaws like a neon sign in the dead of the night.
I know someone out there will eventually be able to break down these walls and I’ll finally be able to set my precious heart free again.
