One moment you’re strangers The next They’re your closest companion How does that come to be
I believe that conversations Ones that require authenticity and vulnerability Dictate the degree of change and closeness That happens in a relationship Regardless of its type Romantic Platonic Mentorship
It’s the conversations where one broken yet brave soul smiles and acknowledges the other that is deeply hidden in another It’s the conversations at 3 in the morning While you’re both on the phone as you slowly fall asleep The conversations that have awkward silences where you smile and bite your lip The conversations that reveal the other and your own character The conversations that let you meet another aspect of yourself The conversations that touch your inner child
One conversation can transform your relationship with that person It can lead you down a different future With yourself
