I never really watch The Bachelor or The Bachelorette. I think, prior to the current Bachelorette with DeAnna, I’ve seen the show maybe five times. But somehow I got sucked into the current season. I only intended to watch the first episode. That didn’t work out so well.
The thing that strikes me, every time I watch the show, is how incredibly open DeAnna is. Her heart was broken on National TV less than a year ago, and yet here she is, her heart incredibly wide open, her desire to find love completely unbridled.
I fully realize that I get in my own way a lot of the time. I realize that I’m too quiet for my own good, that I need to open up more, that I need to take risks with my heart. But it’s one of those things that’s easier said than done. The thought of being that vulnerable scares the shit out of me.
So how do I get past my own personality? How do I open my heart up? Is there some secret I should know about, some sort of instructional course I can take?
And, if you watch the show, who are you rooting for? Personally, I totally love Jason (the one with the kid). 🙂
