it did come slowly

i mean, i mostly wish my friends never had to hurt. or be disappointed, or feel lonely. but this is the world. it moves and turns, and things break and mend. time is the irresistible force and we can try and try to be the immovable objects but i can tell you, it doesn't work. i think the best we can do is to recognize the good moments when they happen, and love them. and other times, maybe just let ourselves get pushed around a little. maybe just be soft. i have found that the less you resist, the less it hurts.

it's good to be in a position to be able to give emotional support to someone else.
i feel strong again.


there are better things ahead.
i promise.
