There is trust involved in opening up to someone new. Letting them see the good and the bad. Letting them know your hopes and fears and dreams. Trying not to let your past influence your present. Trying to be in the moment and not thinking too far ahead nor looking back at how things unfolded before. Letting go of the fear of getting hurt or worse yet hurting them. Keeping the fears at bay.
Opening up your heart to the possibilities. Letting love in.
