During the course of your life, you meet endless amounts of people. Humans come and go, they leave footprints in your heart, the ones that truly matter. Just because someone leaves doesn't mean that you didn't love them, or that your friendship wasn't real. It's just the fact that people change, and circumstances make it that they aren't a part of your life anymore, and thats okay.
There are only a couple of people in this lifetime, that you meet and after a while, you can depend on them for anything. They know you inside out, accept you. Friends give us the courage to lift the blinds off our hearts. To open up and show what we generally keep hidden from the rest of the world.
There's this one girl that I know. Her name is Livy. You guys might have heard of her before. She's a person that I would like to talk about at this moment. If you don't know her, here are some facts about her.
Livy's the type of person that has a song on her mind. She can pick up a guitar or sit herself down at a piano and it's baffling because she can play anything and make it sound good. Livy's seen me at my best and my worst, and my weirdest. She's the most genuine person I've met in a lifetime. It doesn't necessarily mean she is the closest, or my most favourite person in the world - because to be frank, I don't have one. But our friendship doesn't have to be measured. She's a person that I can rely on, or to just have a heart-to-heart with. She's brave, balanced and kind. There's something about her presence that never makes me feel tired, and when I'm over everything and want to be alone, I can be alone with her.
If you know me, you'll know that, I, Indy, HATE explaining things. I don't feel the need to justify my actions every second of the day, because trust me when i say I do that a lot. Livy knows when to give me space, or when to give me love and understanding. She doesn't try to shove advice down my throat, but lets me paint the melancholy feelings of my words and my worlds, so that she too can understand the way my starry eyes comprehend.
You probably don't understand why I am rambling about a particular girl. But it baffles me, that the world walks past her and doesn't stop to get a second glance. I truly believe that she has every quality that somebody should have. I know we all have flaws, after all every single one of us are human. I don't believe in the idea of perfection. But I do believe that after everything I've done, or said, or felt, my sponge can just soak it in for me and squeeze it out so that I can breathe. She does that.
She is the bravest person I know. She doesn't ever make a drama, and she sheds tears a lot because she has a heart that loves when there isn't love to be had. Sometimes I worry that she gives so much love away, that she never has any love for herself.
Liv has this way with you. She's gentle and yet so fiery with her friendships, she fiercely loves and never expects to be noticed with her actions or when she does something for something else. She never says, what is in it for me? What do I get out of this? She's like a breath of fresh air. People's opinions don't matter to her, but then again she doesn't want someone to think she is a bad person.
One of my favourite things about this chica is that theres never a dull day with her. Dress down, dress up, go out, stay at home. Everything is always new and different, and relaxing. She's the type of person you want your kid to be, you want your best friend to be, your sister, your mother, or your partner. She has the whole package.
Livy, looks past at the things that I do, and the mistakes I make with a loving heart. She never forces me to do something that would hurt me. She always knows how to approach things and how to be something, or how to do something I didn't know. Her laugh is contagious and she has the best sense of mind.
I just wanted to acknowledge her goodness in the world, and even though she is only one person, I truly think that she could change the world in a heartbeat. She makes me feel like a somebody. She makes me feel and see the good parts about myself. She's been through a lot and she's been there for and with me. Thank you, my angel.
This is her, by the way.
One thing I can say, is that NEVER treat people like Livy, badly - intentionally. Hurting someone, that has only ever loved you, shows more of the person that you are, then they are. Your actions speak louder than words, and they might forget the words you spoke to them out of spite, but they will NEVER forget the way you made them feel.
