The heart is fragile
Reflections on the heart #6 - the heart is fragile.
The heart is a fragile thing, easily broken. It doesn't take much of a weapon - just a breath, really. A breath used to hurl a word.
Words can wound the heart deeply, even break it.
Those who have been wounded before tend to shield their hearts, building walls and keeping others out, missing out on relationship and community.
All because of words. Words we wish we could un-hear. Words we may say and wish we could call back.
So watch what you say and don't wield your words like a weapon - they are extremely powerful.
