Breakable Hearts

Our hearts…
where our life-blood flows

Our hearts…
designed to imbibe and transport the oxygen and nutrients enabling us to function and move in this world

Our hearts…
the oft-times descriptor of our inner person – the soul and spirit of us

Our hearts…
said to be where our strength lies; where our weakness lies

Our hearts…
fragile or hard as stone; supple or unmoved

Our hearts…
given – with or without boundaries
trusting – with or without trustworthiness
withheld – with or without provocation
desensitised – with or without intention

Our hearts…
longing…afraid…battered…boxed…open…closed off…sheltered…exposed…vulnerable

Do I know what a safe space for my heart looks like?

Am I a safe place for my own heart? The heart of another?

Do I choose to look for a safe a space for my heart?

Will I receive another’s heart into my space?

Will I give my heart into another’s trustworthy space?

Unbreakable Heart, JJ Heller
