Have you ever met someone
And theyre so fucking perfect in everyway.
And maybe they arent perfect to everybody, but to you theyre just absolutely amazing.
The way they laugh and smile and talk and think and look and just everything about them and everything they do just keeps amazing you.
You shouldn’t feel the need to force yourself to keep on running when you know you’re just gonna hit a wall at the finish line. You definitely shouldn’t, after you hit that wall, pick yourself off of the floor and get back to the starting line only to do it all again. I know that it’s hard to let someone go, trust me. I haven’t let you go yet, but I couldn’t ever let you leave because you are a physical part of what makes me who I am. The difference in you and I is that we still get along with one another. I don’t cause you immense pain just by being within your presence. You are you and for whatever reason, you shouldn’t lower your standards. You didn’t force someone to change. I promise you that these words are true. You stated your standards and said that you wouldn’t have anything less. You are an amazing person who I will always do anything for. Opening old wounds won’t get you anywhere. Stop carrying the burdens by yourself and put some faith into the shoulders of your friends. We care about you and are always willing to listen to you. You mean more than any word or combination of words, could ever hope to fill. Getting to know you was an experience of a lifetime. You hold a significant portion of my heart and it isn’t just a placeholder. I know you don’t deserve anything less than what allows for your standards. My heart screams out when I hear that you’re troubled. I will always be here for you. I’m that one person you wanted so badly. I came into your life and I do want to have an impact on it. However, I won’t cause any impact in your life and just leave like the rest. I’m here to stay. You’re my best friend and I love everything about you.
People seem to not understand just how much your affection can affect someone. You can’t spell ‘affection’ without ‘affect.' Just being who you are can cause another person's ENTIRE life, philosophy, morales, and even thoughts to change. The longer you are around someone, the more influence they have on you and vice versa. If you honestly believe that someone really doesn’t care what you do with yourself, you need to ask a person close to you how they’d feel. You’d probably gain some knowledge. Sometimes, the seven sins aren’t so sinful. Being greedy can cause you to save a life.Lusting over someone can lead to more knowledge over that someone and cause you both to know each other more. Sometimes, you have to show pride to change the view points of others. Showing wrath, protects the ones you love. Being a sloth, can allow you to enjoy the time you’re given. Showing envy can cause you to better yourself for the opinion of not only your peers, but yourself as well. Being gluttonous with your job can put forth food on the table. If you feel that you have to sin for someone’s sake, try it out. You deserve happiness the same as anyone else does. Sometimes, in order to achieve this happiness, you have to grind through what feels like an eternity of mud. But that’s okay, if you feel like it is worth that much effort, go ahead and attempt it. It’s much better than making yourself think of what ‘could’ happen or ‘could’ve’ happened, for the rest of your life. Sometimes people just need a helping hand. Other times, that helping hand turns into a slap in the face. Someone could even need a good ‘sock in the kisser’ for all I know. Sometimes, it’s okay to give into your carnal desires. You CAN make an impact. You probably already do. It’s up to you to do what needs to be done. Just don’t feel afraid of what you want.
