When you take someone for granted,
you view them as a fixture,
not someone you need to prop up.
Someone told me that once. I hurried to write it down.
Don’t be taken for granted.
But more importantly, don’t take anyone for granted.
We are not fixtures.
People move and change, evolve and grow.
We do not stand still in one place like scarecrows.
Nothing is permanent unless you take care of it so it can be.
And no matter how independent a person is,
they could use some propping up.
Just because you can make it on your own two feet
doesn’t mean you have to.
It’s nice to have someone’s arms to sink into once in awhile.
It’s nice to feel not as if you’re not alone.
