Some people need cold hard truths from their friends. They ask them to give it them straight, to not hold back, to cut deep if they have to.
I do not need Cold Hard Truths from my friends. Truths, sure, but more than cold truth, I need warm waves of love. I need assurances and validations. I need my friends to remind me of my greatness, to show me my better self when the world seems to working so hard to make me forget it.
