Do You Have a Person?
I thought about this, so I thought I'd ask you, "Do you have a person?" What does "your person" mean to you?
I don't have a "person" right now. When I think about it, "my person" would have to be loyal. My person would be someone to whom I could tell anything in the world, whether it was good, bad or indifferent. My person would have my back in any situation, and I do mean, any situation. My person would hold my head when I throw up. My person would hug me if I were crying. My person would sleep on the floor next to me if I needed help. My person would tell me the truth when I needed to hear the truth. My person would not desert me in any situation. My person would be there, even at a distance, through thick and thin, high and low. My person would ask me if I was taking my medication. My person would go with me to the doctor and make me tell the truth to the doctor, even if I didn't want to tell the truth. My person would not lie to me to spare my feelings. My person would just be there, sitting in silence, when I needed the silence to quiet my soul.
Right now, I don't have a "person," so I am content with Pixie. She already does so many of those things. I'm happy to have her. Maybe someday I'll have a person, but I don't think so. I'm okay with that, too.
So, do you have a person? What does your person do for you? What do you do for your person?
