The title I'm sure does it enough justice. It's not a hard visual to imagine. Hand a 4 year old a glass "toy" and there is little to no time before the "toy" is broken. So, the logical decision would be to not give a 4 year old a glass "toy".Yet (metaphorically speaking), so many of us do it every day by frivolously give our energy away to "4 year olds." We consistently give people access to our energy before they have proven they are capable of handling our authenticity. We entertain people who are more inclined to judge, criticize, or belittle our essence rather than embrace us in love, honesty, and compassion. I learned this lesson the hard way and something very near to me was attacked. Which was unnecessary though. We are allowed to choose who is let in and who stays out.
