You don’t need advice.
You certainly don’t need to be preached to.
You don’t need tough love.
You don’t need threats.
You don’t need to be reminded of how many times you have screwed up.
You just need to be held.
You need kind words, even when you screw up
You need to feel safe enough to cry in arms that understand … even if they don’t know the details of what you’re going through.
Open your arms wide, and let those you love feel safe enough to weep in them.
