When you buy a new car, you tend to be protective that nothing will damage it. You deliberately park where you think no one will open their car door against your new prize. Recently, I went to the bank and saw someone who had put this principle into practice. Their strategy?
Park in two spaces! If you can get people to keep their distance = no damage.
In life’s journey, we have all been hurt from some relationship. If you talk to people very long, they will mention how they have been “damaged” by someone. Their solution? Do not allow people to get too close. If you keep your relationship superficial, then you cannot be hurt. Remember the old adage, “People you love the most hurt you the worst.” Of course this leads to a very shallow, unrewarding life. To love is to risk but it is worth it!
