Joyas Voladoras Essay Response
After reading this essay I feel that it had a very negative and discouraging message. This essay was basically saying that no matter what you do to try to save your heart from pain, its still going to get hurt. This quote proves what I'm saying. "You can brick your heart up as stout and tight and hard and cold and impregnable as you possibly can and it comes down in an instant....." I think that sends a very pessimistic message. It's almost warning you that you will get hurt despite everything you try to do to stop it. After reading this I feel that its not worth it to try to keep my heart safe. It makes me want to stop trying to save myself all the hurt that I will experience in life. Now I guess I understand that you can never possibly stop yourself from being hurt. Maybe you can lock your heart up so it's not effected by some things but then something will happen completely unexpected and your barrier will come down. I'm done trying to lock my heart up and keep it safe. I undertsand now that I can never truly protect my heart from everything.
