Never, ever close your heart. I read this phrase in The Untethered Soul, one my favourite spiritual books, in the months after my husband passed away. I was grieving deeply for him and for me. I was feeling sorry for myself and was scared for my future. But somehow these words, “Never close your heart” were confirmation of something I already felt deep down. It was almost as if I could have written them myself. Because despite all the pity I was receiving from others, I knew those weren’t the thoughts I should embrace or absorb. What I wanted to and needed to believe was that nothing was worth closing my heart over. Even my own sad story.
