Oh. I'm going to need some time to think about that.
I think we should get back together
Last night he told me he wants to get back together with me. I haven't been in the dating world in about 5 years.
OMG! What did you say?
I said I need time. He hurt me so bad last time, I don't know what to do.
Yes, but you need to let go of the past and learn how to be vulnerable again. Remind me to give you something tomorrow.
Amber and Kevin out to dinner. Kevin tells her something she was not expecting to hear after the last time they talked. It has been 5 years since they last saw each other.
Here are 2 books called Becoming Human and Christian Anthropology. They are great books and it can teach you a little about vulnerabilty
Thanks. I hope so, I need some direction
Amber and her best friend Sarah at Amber's house. Amber needs someone to talk to.
"When we discover we are loved in this way, the masks or barriers which we hide are dropped; new life flows" (Vanier, 89).
Hm should I open my heart up again and trust? I'm tired of having this wall up against my heart
Amber starts to think about the last time he hurt her. She doesn't know if she is ready to open her heart up again but Sarah purposes she reads 2 book first.
So, I read a book that really hit me. It reminded me that when I was a little girl, I used to be free of myself because I knew I was loved. Somewhere along the way, I must've lost that. I became self conscious when you cheated on me, thinking you didn't love me anymore. I want to feel like a little girl again. I want to trust again. If we take things slow, we should get back together.
Great! Thank you for trusting me again. That book sounds impacting. I would love to read it one day.
Sarah gives Amber the 2 books to read to give her some direction in order to make a decision.
Amber at her house reading "Becoming Human" by Jean Vanier. The section "The Heart" in Chapter 3, closely relates to her situation.
