Even if you’re stubborn or moody or judgmental, I will love you anyway. And when I’m stubborn, moody, and judgmental I’ll try to do the same for myself. I’ll try to rise above petty thoughts and sweeping generalizations and keep sight of who you and I really are: good people who are doing our best to navigate a sometimes-painful world.
Because we all stress and strain and struggle sometimes. We all get fed up, ticked off, and let down, and at times we all lash out.
In these moments when we feel lost and down on ourselves, it helps to see ourselves through the eyes of someone who believes in us. And it helps to remember we’re not alone, and that someone else really cares.
Someone who’ll stand by us at our worst and inspire us to be our best.
Someone who’ll sit on a roof with us and and talk about everything big or nothing important for a while. Someone who might not always know which one we need, but who’s willing to ask and find out.
This is the kind of friend I want to have, and the kind of friend I want to be. Because life is all about people. And all people need a little love.
