I thrive on beautiful things like laughter and love and kindness and compassion and tenderness and concern and care.
Everyone gives some of these things sometimes. I tried to show everyone these things all the time and made a lot of friends who gave me some of these things sometimes. Eventually, however, I started getting envy and jealousy and hatred and games and lies and public humiliation and everything negative you can think of when it comes to relationships.
When this happened I completely shut down. I was destroyed and on the verge of death. Then you barged into my life and started to put me back together. You knew exactly what to do. You gave me laughter and love and kindness and compassion and tenderness and concern and care.
Then I was back to myself again and ready to go back into the world.
Your love guided me back.
We’re not soul mates. We’re twin spirits. We breath for each other. We sustain each other. We are truly one.
