If only life were really like this. Not the real world lines drawn up by man and recorded in land offices across the world, those are necessary. Usually. The boundaries which cause sadness created by a person keeping others out.
When I was in college we sang a song about walls and bridges in small group devotions. ‘You can build a bridge or you can build a wall. It all depends upon the love you give. If you build a wall, your world is small. But, a bridge of love can conquer all.’ Even this song, with a nugget of knowledge, isn’t big enough when there is a desire for privacy. Love is sometimes the reason a person demands privacy.
Keeping others from knowing physical or mental pain is a choice. An often admirable decision made out of love or embarrassment or pride or some other reason. In the long run, however, it hurts. Man was not created to survive alone. We need help, hands to lift us, lights to shine in the darkness. Letting others inside the boundaries of ourselves makes those burdens lighter. It is crazy how it works, but it does!
Build a 100 Acre wood trespassers will be allowed to love and help and share. A place where Trespassers Will Be Welcomed!
