In life, shit happens and it is what it is. After being hurt so many times, you kinda reach a point when you realize it’s not easy to trust people and it’s better to live with these walls, at least for the time being.
We encounter so many people in our life and regardless of what their true intentions are, we tend to put our guards up. It gets harder and harder to believe when people say they are different from the previous one and that they are not going to hurt us. It’s always easier said than done.
So when the walls start gradually building, don’t fret. It’s just human nature. It’s our defense mechanism. Pride, in good amount, serves a big purpose. You gotta save love for yourself. Realize that you can’t be a push over. Learn to pick your battles. There’s no point in wasting people’s time and it’s pointless to invest empty emotions. Sometimes, you just got to learn to say, “Fuck it.”
