Have you ever had someone in your life that…just made you feel relaxed & tense at the same time ~ both in a good way?
Have you ever known someone that you can relax completely around? Say anything, and they’re cool with it. Or say nothing…and they’re cool with that too?
Have you ever been able to talk so openly with someone that you stopped yourself at some point, replayed the conversation in your head, & said to yourself “I could never say that to anyone else I know, but it’s just natural with this person.” ?
Have you ever had someone in your life that just was that easy to be around?
Because they know you. They know little things about you, that no one else does. Mainly, because they pay attention. They listen, even to the spaces in between the words you speak. They read your body language, your expressions, your tone, and they can almost predict what the next words out of your mouth will be.
And they let you…be you. No filter, no fibs, no tactful re-phrasing. Just straight-up & honest.
There are a couple people in my life like that.
Thank the Goddess.
I just hope they know that they can be “unfiltered” with me too.
I’m pretty sure they do, judging from some of the conversations we’ve had.
If you have someone like this in your life – don’t let go. Hang onto them, because it’s an amazing piece of knowledge… Knowing that there are those out there who know the “me” behind the masks…
And they still want to be in my life.
They still love me ~ even the crazy bits.
