We perceive the world around us through a particular lens, one that we uniquely craft for ourselves based on our past life experiences.
Sometimes, our past life experiences cause us to build walls up around ourselves, blocking out the outside world, relationships and people of any kind. We take on a mentality of rejection, which causes us to shut down and put the walls up even higher so we feel protected and safe from the hurt other people might cause us. But, it’s pretty hard to live life with your walls up all the time. Makes it difficult to see what’s going on around you. Makes creating real relationships with people next to impossible.
