From CRYING IN FRONT OF YOUR DOG AND OTHER STORIES
James Hilton, Random Harvest
It’s okay to not have the courage sometimes.
It’s okay to feel like a failure sometimes.
It’s okay to fail, and fail again and fail again sometimes.
It’s okay to not know.
It’s okay to not have it in you.
It’s okay to want something else.
It’s okay to want to curl into a ball and cry.
It’s okay to feel all this insecurity and terror.
It’s okay to have anxiety.
It’s okay to feel really really really really lonely.
Because as much as I hate cliche.
There’s always something else.
and then again,
when the time comes,
love is the antithesis of fear.
There’s no company better than one’s own self.
With all these other things going on in my life,
I just realized I’ve made you, not home, but a part of home.
I’m not sure if it’s love. The word has been overused it has lost its weight in my vocabulary. But I sure can call you home.
Darling you. Thanks for you.
