People who wear their heart on their sleeve express their emotions freely and openly, for all to see. They do not hold back their emotions, for good or bad. They let things get to them easily. There is a possibility of not knowing how to let go of negative feelings and unhappiness.
Therefore, once they fall in love there is an opening for ridicule. People tease them. The heart brakes. Difficulty hiding the wounds close to the chest and in privacy. A bit like a card player not wanting to show their hand yet unable too. Therefore, ‘giving up the game’ and exposing his own bluff. In life, there are lessons to learn. One is to “keep your cards close to your chest”, which figuratively means not displaying emotions or what the objectives are.
Through learning these lessons that inner child begins to be protected. In actual fact that innocence becomes locked away, behind mental barriers erected to protect oneself from learned pain triggers.
Things that enhance the chemical release towards pleasure are ‘dumbed down’. Or protectively avoided. The heart either hardens, complete with steel walls or is never on display.
There is a part of the right frontal hemisphere in the brain [ aka the Third Eye or the God Center] that radiates when these pleasure chemical abound. Heightened awareness is compounded. Smiles are found all round.
Dammen down these experiences and the depression center enlarges with a different chemical release.
Potentially leading to your inner child being a ‘trapped, ignored, over protected, depressed, inner child” within the mind.
My own life experience also had a form of Autistic Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome triggered from a truck hitting my vehicle. Now I had a trapped inner child in a mind who did not even know who it was , let alone recognizing there was someone else in there.
How does one function in the real would with an open heart and a hidden inner child that no longer wanted to stay hidden and escaped?
So many things lead me to seeking a link that eventually I chose to help me reestablish what was an annoying void.
Yes, there was confusion, pain, laughter, tears, frustrations that lead into new mindsets, goals, dream formations. And finally, the ‘me’ who I was, along with the ‘me’ that I was, have joined together as a work in progress allowing the ‘Me’ I am today to be present and accounted for……..
