As the popular Nazareth song says: "Love Hurts". This is true in so many ways.
I don't know of any relationship that consists of love, that has not caused some hurt along the way.
I have been guarding my heart with extra special care, but obviously not quite enough as Love Hurts is my song once again.
I chose to open my heart and I don't regret it. This will not be the last time, I'm sure. I hope that I can learn from this and be thankful for the lesson.
I don't know if I will ever find what I am looking for. I do know that I will keep hoping!
