Scared of Love? You’re Not Alone

I hear so many people proclaim that they never want to remarry. Or even to fall in love again. They’ve been bitten and now they’re shy.

Or, more accurately, scared of being hurt again.

I get it. It’s certainly safer to build those walls and live within.

Safer. But also limiting.

A life in a cage.

And I believe we’re meant to fly.

Even though we may fall sometimes.

This article on reasons why people are afraid of love came across my feed today. Read it. I related; I bet you will too.

And then let your fears be the beginning rather than the end.

Thank you for sharing!

  1. I wrote about just this subject the other day. I won’t say never, just not now.

  2. That is exactly how I feel. For now? Forever? Who knows.

  3. Thanks for sharing this! I also would add that the thought of a new relationship sometimes feels overwhelming, as the thought of getting to know another person intimately on every level seems exhausting after having done it in previous relationships. As I entertain dating again, I am learning to take it one step at a time, confront my fear, and let go a little more each day. It is most definitely a process.

      1. For me, it is learning who is worth that effort and energy, and learning to follow my heart but bringing my head with me. I believe in love and have faith that I will find it once again when I am ready.

  4. elizabeth2560 – ABOUT ALMOST SPRING Two and a half years ago my 37 year marriage ended suddenly through no choice of my own. I survived the heartache. I have taken control of my present. I am planning my own destiny, which is moving onwards to a life of purpose and meaning. This is my journey.

    This was an interesting article and I have bookmarked it. One other thing I would add is s fear of losing oneself.After being in a long-term relationship, I am enjoying learning to be my authentic self probably for the first time in my life and I do not want to give that up (yet). It is probably covered a little by points # 1 & 2, although not exactly.
    Thanks for the link. .
