We all have our way of protecting ourselves.
A policeman wears a bullet proof vest.
A Navy officer and crew wear a life-jacket.
A previous victim of crime, buys a gun.
All these people take safety precautions.
People that have been hurt mentally.
Build walls as a safety precaution.
To get through you have to break down the walls.

this is so true Barb -- people do tend to build walls around their emotions, because they don't want to get hurt again... and it sometimes takes a while to break those walls down.

To me its sad that some get hurt over and over.They haven't learned.
