Friendship

To my fake friends, thank you for showing me the value in understanding people for what they are. Thank you for taking all of my good qualities and turning them into something negative to fit your narrative.

No matter what anyone tells you, it’s a special thing
to be loved. When someone can giggle at your jokes
and still have the sensitivity
to read your dead father’s old journals.

Gemini: Understand that being a good friend has two sides – it means being there for the people you care about, but also letting them be there for you. You are very good at being dependable and supportive, but you’re more reluctant to let your friends take care of you. Being okay with letting your friends look out for you is just as important as looking out for them – it works both ways.
