It is nice to have someone sacrifice for you without guilt attached.
A month or so ago,
A friend gave up her lunch break to walk with me
When I wanted to find out what was happening in her life.
We laughed and cried in that quick time.
I wanted to apologize for my raw emotion when I shared
But it was really all I had to offer and I had to be honest
So I didn’t take it back
And she actually likes me more, I think.
That doesn’t happen for me very often.
Sometimes, I start to wonder why,
But it hurts too much to figure it out
So I don’t.
Instead, I wait to survey intentions carefully.
This brings unintended appreciation
For those who choose it.
To me, part of relationship is pure sacrifice.
