I have to remember this. I have a tendency to want to hold on to people forever. And when they don't want the same, I become hurt, and react by building walls. I am grateful for the time some people gave me. Especially when I lost my child.
The most beautiful part to loving a guarded girl is this: When she lets you in, it's not because she needs you. She stopped needing people a long time ago. It's because she wants you. And that—that is the purest love of all. I'm sorry I'm so guarded.
