This quote helped me regain myself in love and life but I do not want to get hurt again. 

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket- safe, dark, motionless, airless--it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable.”

Real love doesn't hurt..

That sums up the pain of attachment in this world fungirl ... the only way to avoid paid is to remain detached ... absolutely right. Personally I can't do that ... never have, never will ... and there will always be pain one way or another ... but I just couldn't choose to live that way. ((hugs))

I think it is too late for me as well.

Already there. too late for me. I just want to help others.
