It’s been expressed by poets and writers in many ways, but it all comes down to this: life is a play and every human being has their role. Surely, each one of us is the leading character in our own stories, but you also need to have those people who frantically run behind the scenes to make sure that everything will roll smoothly on stage. They are, perhaps, the most important people in our lives but no one really knows how essential they are for us to keep going.
It’s that one person you might call mom, dad, sister, brother or a true friend; it doesn’t really matter. It’s the one person you call your person; the one you will turn to for advice or when you need a shoulder to cry on or to just bitch about whatever life throws at you. They are our superheroes, they keep a low profile, they might disappear for some time but they will always be there when you need them the most.
Your person will help you up when you are feeling down, they will let you make your mistakes but they will make sure to be there to bust you about them afterwards. It’s not the kind of person who will smile and play along with your self-destructive behaviour. They will force you to face tough facts and deal with any issues you might have.
They are also the ones who will show you how strong and worthy you are when you think low of yourself, though. They will make you reach your limits and then help you exceed them just to help you see that you are actually better than you think you are. They will make it their life’s goal, if needed, to prove their theories about you and when they see you succeeding they will be the first ones to applaud your efforts and point out how you made it all by yourself. They will not ask for credit or for something in return; your success will be their reward.
They know all of your dark secrets and ugly sides, but they are still there for you. They don’t judge, they simply state facts and truths. They won’t get upset if you choose to act against their advice. They will stick by your side, worryingly waiting for the time you’ll collapse so that they can lift you up once again.
See, they know when you are about to make the biggest mistake of your life but they won’t hold you back, they won’t even say so. They will simply tell you that they are there for you no matter what you choose to do in the end.
That’s part of the reason you love and respect them so much. They never stand pointing fingers and they don’t turn into fierce judges. All they want is for you to come stronger out of any battle you have to fight. They will never fight it for you, but they will stand by you along the way.
They will help you find the will and strength within you to move forward. They push you and they press all the right buttons so that you use everything bad to your benefit. So what if you got hurt by an arrogant ass or a selfish bitch? Your person will force you to look deep and find what you did wrong and read all those signs you had ignored so that you can be more cautious the next time around.
Your person will always be your personal superhero, coming to your rescue when you are in trouble. No one will ever know who they are and they are too modest to come out and let the world know. They will forever remain the unknown people who pull strings and adjust sounds behind the curtain so that the show can go on unobstructed.
They want nothing but to see you smile and be happy. So, love them, appreciate them and value them. And most importantly tell them how much they mean to you.
