I’ve learned that it’s okay to break. We don’t stay that way. We may never be the same but sometimes we come out better. We learn and we grow. We push fear away and still allow people in. My heart has been broken and I’m still here and I’m still here. I just have a heart that’s not unlike my dad’s old Igloo cooler — a little worse for the wear, covered in duct tape and still totally functional. Just have to be gentle with it sometimes…
