If you start singing Baby Don’t Hurt Me, then you’re probably right.
Because love is basically giving someone permission to break your heart but in the wistful hope that they won’t. It’s a little bit like giving someone access to your car and hoping that they won’t scratch it or even worse, crash it and make it a total wreck.
Instead, you’d hope that they would take care of it and treat it as the precious thing it is. It means that person that you give your heart to (and you may share it with more than one person in different ways) should not take it for granted. After all, you too can choose to hand your heart to someone else. You have choices.
So be careful in who you give your heart to. You wouldn’t just give your car out to anybody to test-drive.
Happy Valentine’s Day, whether you’re single or partnered. Make sure that you take good care of your heart, not just today but for life.
