It’s not about who you’ve known the longest. It’s not about who you’re closest too, in distance or the relationship sense. It’s not about your past, or even really about your future. It’s not about the flaws, or mistakes. It’s not about whether you live next door or if you live 10,000 miles away.
It’s about human nature. It’s about who has been there when the going gets tough. It’s about who causes you to feel. It’s about who can turn a really shitty day into a somewhat decent one with a few mere words and the thought of their genuinely huge heart. It’s about who makes the effort. It’s about honesty and vulnerability. It’s about taking chances and risks and believing in people. None of these things are remotely easy.
But that’s what life is about..finding those people and those moments who make life worthwhile. Hold onto those people, hold on to those things and those special moments and forget the rest. Tell them why they are special. Tell them how much you appreciate them and give them the pieces of you which they helped to grow. They need to hear how much they are wanted and needed just as much as you do. Don’t let others talk you out of what you want. People will always have their opinions. Let them…because they need that to survive. And just be thankful as hell that you have grown into the type of person who doesn’t need to rain on others parade just to feel your own sunshine. Share the beauty, share the love, find your happy and trust your gut.
You are who you are,
