Tonight I saw a friend tear up, and another friend of ours stand true by her side. They were just talking about love and change and fear and courage…it came down to this. I am here, through thick and thin.
Wondering about a friends choices, their journey?
Just let them talk, and don’t give advice like you know better. Just see them for their flaws and don’t turn away when they blush. Just let them trip and fall and be there to hold them. Let them cry and play with them in the puddles of their tears. They are ahead of you in some ways and behind you in others that may not seem clear in this moment. Just let loose and let life be the weird little journey that it is. Make sure they know that you see, admire, love and respect them. More than this, look them in the eye when they profess their struggles, and smile cause it’s forever that you get to know them. The friends that are lifelong, they will give it right back when you least expect it. I love my friends. I love them so much.
