    I had an extremely intelligent woman on EP send

    this in a private message to me. I believe she has posted it elsewhere in one of her own stories, but I simply had to share it here, too. If you see this, please know I found it extremely profound and have read and reread it so many times I've nearly committed it to memory...

    “A heart given freely is the most vulnerable

    and selfless thing one can offer another human being. It can be as fragile and needy as a newly born infant, or as solid and self-supporting as a granite pillar, yet it is the hands of the recipient that determines its ultimate fate.” ― Mark W Boyer

    I Am Proud Of My Heart

    I'm proud of my heart.  It's been played, stabbed, cheated, burned and broken,  but somehow it still works. There is nothing more beautiful than a person whose heart has been torn apart, but still believes in the beauty of love.
