Anna,

I don't think it takes a hurtful divorce to scare you away from being hurt. Being hurt in anyway will make you not want to go through it again.

I believe that so many people here have learned so much that if they do find themselves opening up to someone again, they will know that they will not be hurt by that person.

I know! you didn't think you would get hurt the first time and neither did I.

I also know that I will never make the same mistakes in another relationship again and I'm sure you wont either.

Be confident in yourself in knowing that you won't let yourself be hurt again. But don't pass up what it is that you want just to avoid the risk of being hurt.
