It’s been months now with no words spoken between us. It’s been difficult to struggle alone when for so long she helped me stand. But now I stand on my own.
Let’s face it: some of the people in this world you just don’t get along with. They ruffle your feathers, rub you the wrong way, or make you feel as lonely as an empty peanut butter jar (after you’ve eaten half of it with a tablespoon, while lying on the couch drenched in your self-pity and shame).
Do not drink wine together.
Do not drink tequila together.
Do not drink mezcal together.
Do not drink whiskey together
Thank you for allowing me to learn some tough lessons on my own. Thank you for stopping me when I started to become destructive. Thank you for never questioning me, even when I questioned myself. You have saved me in so many ways.
Love is consistent.
You’re such a great blessing and every day I thank God for your mere existence.
You just fit in, like the missing jigsaw piece to my life and I knew that no matter what happens now, you’ll always be here because it wouldn’t be right without you.
You are the calm to the stormy days. You bring stability to my chaos. You light up my life during my most trying times and you pushed me to take one more step when I was on the verge of giving up.
We’re all just trying to survive. We all have our insecurities. We can sink in them or try very hard to rise above them.
As much as it hurts to grow apart from the people who once were important to you, what’s really important at the end of the day is to cherish the people who chose to stick by your side.
