Oh my god
Oh my god
People meet people at strange times, and sometimes you are too weak to meet people, or sometimes your anomalous exuberance of joy overshadows those around you — and when, in due times, you meet this person, you are suddenly captivated by their heavenly smile or by their melodic voice. Sometimes, you have to be strong for not only yourself, but for this person because sometimes, you meet people who are falling apart, and you meet the people who don’t realize how much they need you or how much you need them. At times, you have to remember that you were in a place that they used to be, and you are the person who knows how to save them from it. Or maybe, you’re the one who needs to be saved.
Or … there’s the possibility that one day you will see the day that you grow to love this person, and somewhere along the process, you will teach them how to love and grow. Or possibly there is a chance that you will give them the hope that they have been in dire need of.
But remember, you have to be strong, you have to be who you are, just as you are, and for that, a person will love you or hate you.
Strangely, sometimes the deep breaths that we take feel clearer, or sometimes more damp; yet we find ourselves in a motion of swaying back and forth, shifting weight from one knee to the next, smiling with our eyes closed. It’s nothing peculiar, we just always see and experience the things we want, and never the things we don’t.
