When you put up walls, you only keep out people who can offer help, love, compassion, support and many other things that are invaluable. Furthermore, when you push people away, they leave. When you stop pushing you give others the opportunity to step up which is a gift to them just as much as to you. No person is an island.... we all need others and we all need relationships, that is not a weakness, just a fact.
Allow yourself to be vulnerable, express your true emotions and Live An Inspired Life.
