That’s the thing about people like us.
We’ll move mountains for the people we care about.
We’ll stay up late to put a smile on their face when they’re hurting.
We’ll hold their hair back while they puke and tell them it’s going to be okay.
We’ll cancel plans to drive them to their doctors appointments
We'll make them food because we don’t want them to be hungry.
We’ll ask them about their fears, their dreams, and everything in between that lights a fire in their eyes.
We’ll ask them about their day because we truly hope it was filled with happiness
but sometimes things change.
The people we thought were forever grow cold.
Just remember this:
If someone treats you like a backup plan
If someone isn’t watering the delicate seeds scattered within you
If someone turns to you only when it’s convenient for them
If someone shames you for chasing what you love
don’t beg them to stay.
Smile and show them the door.
There are no hard feelings,
just a realization
that you don’t need them anymore.
