I want to release the hold that emotional abandonment has on me!

It has been very challenging for me to create healthy intimate relationships. I feel I can never fully open my heart to someone for fear of getting hurt. I don't want to live my life like this. I want to experience ALL that love has to offer. I really don't like being this protected. It's like I have no control over how my heart and mind react when it comes to being close to someone. It's an automatic and familiar response when I push someone away because I can't deal with the possibility of getting my heart hurt. I want to be able to establish open, healthy relationships. I'm done trying to guard myself....it's very tiring.
