Pros and Cons of My Trust Issues

When you’re meeting someone and butterflies kick in, it is dangerous to simply just allow yourself to blindly free-fall and it is dangerous to have layers of brick walls guarding everything. It is so difficult for me to not walking a new situation with pain from the last one. I will free-fall and continue to layer myself with these brick walls. It's weird because It is almost as if I enjoy having my guard up and watching someone earn my love and respect. But then it complicates everything. The pros and cons list of my trust issues runs pretty deep on the cons side.

That’s just a few of the things that I have been trying to challenge lately. I wish I was the type of person that didn’t feel the need to guard their heart completely. I wish I free-fell into someone’s love.
