Taking The Pain
I’ve never been chosen. Never the one wanted or longed for. I’m always the good friend. The loyal friend. The person anyone can confide in without fear of judgement and trust that your words go no further than my ears.
You’ll never want me, but you will need me. When you’re hurt, abandoned and have no one else to turn to. I’ll be right there. The benefits of a painful past are amazing depths of empathy and understanding. If you’re hurting, I reach out for you. You wont always see it but you will hear me whisper encouragement and support in your ear.
The only part I hate is when my selfishness surfaces. When I can see you’ve healed and you’ve already found someone to want. To bring you the happiness that I could not. That selfishness… That greed.. It wants your suffering to continue so I’m not left behind again.
Be grateful for my strength. I’m strong enough to truly want what’s best for you; even if it hurts. You’re happiness is of upmost importance. If I didn’t think your happiness was worth the pain of goodbye, I never would have said “Hello”. I love you.
