In this week's podcast Wendy K Laidlaw talks about past pain, especially from close relationships, often erodes trust and makes us keep our hearts closed off.
Whilst balancing the need for protection and connection can be challenging, extremes of isolation or vulnerability with our hearts were unhelpful. Either, life's beauty often gets overshadowed by sadness and loneliness when we shield our hearts or we get hurt from being too open.
The key is a balanced middle ground. To heal and reopen your heart involves gradual steps combined with the implementation of strong, protective mechanisms.
Creating a protective mechanism enables you to identify triggers and set boundaries, and amid the fast-paced chaos of today’s society, listening to your inner voice and having brick-like boundaries becomes vital.
On her own journey, doing these things allowed Wendy to rebuild trust in herself. She realised not everyone is kind and stopped 'idealising those who hurt her' and learned to differentiate genuine connections from toxic ones.
Wendy realised it was okay to hear uncomfortable truths about people and to say no when someone’s behaviour or requests didn’t work for her.
If you need assistance safely re-opening your heart then join her at her Retreat. You will be able to learn how to hear your voice, establish boundaries, and navigate various personalities. Even more so, you will be able to experience safe connections and fully relax in the tranquil settings of the Retreat.
Mother Teresa said the worst disease is feeling unwanted and for so long she felt this way.
Now, her heart now shines, is unshackled and strong and she is able to appreciate the world around her. Let her guide you to heal the hurts of your heart.
