Emotional walls. We all have them, or we have had them at some point in our lives. Emotional walls are built because we think they will protect us from the pain and shame that comes from either choices we make or choices that were made by others that affect us.
Recently I was having a conversation with a young lady about emotional walls, how they get built and what their purpose is. The thing is, the purpose of the wall is to protect our emotions but the reality of the wall is that it will destroy who we are meant to be.
I was the master at building walls. My walls were so thick that even in the darkest of times nobody could penetrate them, nobody could get to me and hurt me and nobody knew I was hurting. (or so I thought.) Most of you reading this are familiar with pain, that is why you are on a site called Healing Takes Time.
My encouragement for you today is to take down those emotional walls. One brick at a time. There is healing.
