I had a great conversation with a wonderful person yesterday.
And I am feeling empowered. Pardoned, even — like being given permission to just be. All the flaws others have pointed out and I’ve believed through the years, no longer hold me back. They remind me to be humble — not apologetic, no. Just humble enough to accept my mistakes and failures, learn from them, and try again.
I write this as a wish to the universe that everyone might have at least one person to see them as they truly are and with as much love as my friend sees me. I also wish that we may eventually be that person for ourselves and at least one other.
