I wonder how many people secretly feel this way?

“Sometimes you put walls up not to keep people out, but to see who cares
enough to break them down.”

Your quote touched a chord in me today! Sadly my story is about someone who feels NOONE cares and has kept the world at arm's length. Let me explain.

My husband & I mentor at-risk children. One day I told the program director how sad I was that our little friend's grandmother shut us out of her life completely. He expalined she puts up a wall, a "tough veneer," because SHE feels unlovable! Sadly, her fear of rejection has caused her to live a very lonely existence. Like your quote says, she is testing people but is convinced she knows the outcome.

I learned such an important Life Lesson from that experience. When someone hurts you it's about THEM... not you!

So glad you stopped by my blog, I'll be back! - vicki xo
