Thawing the Frozen Soul
I am a river of love. Unfortunately, you can’t dip into me, because I’m currently frozen over. - Jarod Kintz, Love quotes for the ages. And the ageless sages.
Sometimes the spark of life in a person wanes, shrinking to a weak and sputtering flame. The fire may be dampened by emotional reaction to trauma or tragedy. Or, it may be so gradual that the dimming of the flame is scarcely noticed since functioning in daily life goes on. This can happen, for example, when one is not living their truth.
