I never knew how beautiful a broken soul could be. I never really understood the concept of loving someone for everything they are and not just loving the parts I liked. I never knew how attached I could become to another person. I never knew it was possible to find myself in another person. I never knew the importance of showing appreciation ore receiving appreciation. I never knew just how much ONE person could make such a HUGE difference in my life until I met you. As cliche as it sounds I have to admit you are different but a kind of different; You make the impossible, possible.
- If it won’t matter after 72 hours, it never did.
- If you won’t feel the need to react after 72 hours, don’t at all.
- If they know you’re hurting and haven’t checked up within 72 hours, move on.
Don’t be so hard on yourself. Think of it this way: ever wonder why it’s so easy to offer advice but when you’re in a difficult situation, the answers aren’t as clear? Thats because when someone else comes to you with a problem, they are in a maze and lost, while you have a birds eye view from above and can easily see where they need to go to get out of the maze. However, when you’re in the maze (your problem), all you see are barriers and need an outside perspective to help you turn the right way. Keep in mind, they can only tell you which way to go, but not force your legs into walking that direction. Whether to walk that way or not is entirely in your decision.
Do you ever sit and think “what if?” What if you had never said the first hello, or what if your paths never crossed? What if you had just five more minutes. What if you could turn back time and make it all stand still. Where would you be? Better? Worse? Less confused? More confused? Happier? Or sadder? Just what if…
Believe that love is out there. And believe that dreams come true everyday, because they do. Sometimes happiness doesn’t come from money, fame, or power. Sometimes happiness comes from good friends and family, and from the quiet nobility of leading a good life. So take a look in the mirror and remind yourself to be happy, because you deserve to be. And always be thankful for the life you have, appreciate every moment, cherish every person around you and be grateful for everything.
When you ask if we could be friends this is what you are really asking for: You are asking me to talk to you about other guys and maybe ask you for advice, you are asking me to sped my late nights with someone else, to stay up on the phone with someone else and maybe one day I will cancel on you because I have a date. You are asking me to take back my good morning and good night texts, my undivided attention, you are telling me it is okay if I am not always there for you, you are letting me get away with not putting you first and you are telling me that it is okay to give all my love in to someone else while you are there watching. You are giving me the opportunity to start seeing other guys as more than friends, you are giving me the time to get to know others on a deeper level and you are giving me the chance to fall in love with someone else. When you say let’s be friends, you are asking me to hurt you. You are asking me to show you what you could have had but chose to lose. When you say let’s be friends, you are saying I am okay with losing you as both more than a friend and a friend. You are saying it is okay to watch me leave and be with someone else and you cannot say anything about it. Because you will realize that you had the chance, that this could have been you if only you tried harder, if only you were not so guarded, if only you did not use timing as an excuse, if only you had let your emotions guide you that one time…you cannot say anything but “if only” and I cannot say anything but “I told you so.” When you say let’s be friends you are asking for an invitation to my wedding day or maybe no invitation at all. When you say let;s be friends, I do not think you know what that means. I do not think you understand how it will change everything between us or how it will change me. When you say let’s be friends, you are asking me to leave you alone, to leave you lonely, to warm someone else up as you stay alone in the cold. When you say let’s be friends, you are saying goodbye. So let me ask you, is that what you really want?
If you have my number, please do not be afraid to use it. It is okay if it has been a week, a month, a decade, you have it for a reason. The number that you hold is not just my personal number, it is the direct line to hope and help. It is a direct line to support and its a direct line to understanding. I have been though rough times, and I have been through happy times, and I will always understand what made you want to pick up the phone. So if you are awake late at night like I am, and you wonder who to call because no one else will answer your texts, you can call me. I will always listen. And maybe sometimes, I will forget to text you back or call you back because life moves so rapidly, and some things slip through the cracks. But do not give up. Continue to text me. I will never be upset. Because if you have my number, you have my friendship. I hope you never go a night thinking that no one out there thinks of you, because I probably do, and I want to hear from you. It is alright if it has been awhile because life goes on, and I will have forgotten how much time has passed until I look at our last conversation and by then, we will already be talking. So if you have my number, please use it, and if you do not, please ask.
