Some Monday Motivation
"Millions of people have decided not to be sensitive. They have grown thick skin around themselves just to avoid being hurt by anybody. But it is at great cost. Nobody can hurt them, but nobody can make them happy either.
When you start becoming open, both things become available: Sometimes it will be cloudy, and sometimes there will be sun. But if you remain closed off in your cave, then there is no cloud and no sun either. It is good to come out, to dance with the sun, and yes, sometimes to feel sad with the clouds too - and sometimes it will be very windy. When you come out of the cave, all things are possible, and one of the things is that people can hurt you … but that is only one of the things.
Don’t think about it too much, otherwise you will become closed again. There are millions of possibilities; think of those things too. You will be happier; you will be more loving. You will be more available, and other people will be more available to you. You will be able to laugh, you will be able to celebrate. There are a thousand and one possibilities. Why choose only one thing, that people will hurt you?"
