The Walls I Have Built

Unfortunately, I know this to be too true.   So many times I have missed out on things because of the "walls" I have built around me, or around my heart.  I really have few friends...but I have chosen this. So I can't really complain. I am confined by that wall and... I built it myself.  I also have missed out on activities thinking, "I can't do that or I won't do that because of so and so maybe happening." It is a shame to look back sometimes and think of some of the things I could of done. That is why I am trying to open myself up to saying yes, more often.  Instead of finding an excuse as to why I can't.  It isn't easy, but I am usually happier afterwards for the experience I have gained, or even the fun I have had. And if I don't like it, then I have a legitimate reason not to do it again.


  1. I'm definitely with you on that. I have missed so many family events and special moments that I refused to attend because of my walls and isolation. It is quite a shame and you're right, it is much better to say yes and just give things a shot.

  2. I find that I almost automatically say no. It doesn't even occur to me to say yes. But I've missed out on a lot, too. I want to be open to saying yes more often as well.
