I may look solid and firm, but
I, too, deserve the warmth
and light of love.
Sometimes when we have gone through something difficult, whether relatively recent or in our distant past, we learn to protect ourselves.
We build up walls and foundations so we may never feel that vulnerable again.
And we may appear mountain-like to others- solid structures, untouchable by the whims of life.
Yet, I drew this picture to show that even mountains are warmed by the sun’s light.
And those who may appear strong, who may be “healed” in their own mind or the mind’s of others, are not beyond the need to reach for light and love.
Never shut yourself off completely. It is ok to need love, no matter how strong you feel you need to be.
