Last year I wrote a blog post called Remember to Feed the Unicorn where I talked about unconditional love. I wrote about how sometimes all you can do is love someone from afar. It’s the best you can do to protect yourself and to let them be who they want to be.
They’re your unicorn because they could hurt you with that horn.
I was speaking of a specific person and a specific situation. It’s not important who or about what. What IS important is that I learned and grew.
I have softened as I have gotten older.
I give others a break – and I give myself breaks too.
We can’t always be perfect and we can’t expect others to be perfect.
Since I wrote the unicorn blog post, I have kept updated on my unicorn through mutual friends. I reached out to see if it was even possible to heal our friendship. I forgot what we fought about in the first place that made us not be friends. It was so long ago that it doesn’t matter.
All I know is that I got to visit with my friend. It was like a piece of my heart was put back in place.
It’s a lesson in friendship.
Today it might not be working and you have to step away. It’s the best thing for you to do today. It doesn’t mean you can never be friends again.
Don’t overthink it. Just go back slowly and see what happens.
You could have a piece of your heart put back in place too.
