The moment you figure it out is life changing.
Seeing yourself in your friends is normal, safe, comforting.
The moment you recognize your old pain in your friend, is heartbreaking.
Seeing yourself helpless as they struggle is torture.
The moment you realize they are about to figure it out is illuminating.
Seeing yourself cheering from the sidelines is restraining.
The moment you realize they need to struggle alone brings sorrow.
Seeing them reach out to you for help is healing.
I will wait for you to reach out. I will help pick up the pieces. I love you without conditions. Love yourself the same.
