Every time you hurt them it adds another layer to their outer shell and makes their defenses more impenetrable. They may valiantly deflect your words and actions with their assertive body language – but their eyes will speak the truth… it’s the only part of their true selves they cannot hide beneath their steely resolve to stand strong no matter what you throw at them.
These people are gentle warriors – they defend but never attack.
But their downfall is the more layers they add, the heavier it becomes until it weighs them down so much they cannot move forward any more.
And this is the only time they’ll raise their sword… not to cut you down… but to simply cut you out of their life completely so they can move on…….Ranata Suzuki
