Sometimes your heart is frozen.
It takes a lot of effort to melt the ice.
Depending on how cold it is it will take several attempts to defrost.
If your heart has been without love for a long time, it is used to the cold, yes almost comfortable that way.
When a heart is cold, it has shrunk in size, almost incapable of loving again.
If you want to melt that heart you need to be patient, cope with setbacks and being pushed away.
If you have patience and can be strong and even forgive, it will all be worth it in the end.
