There are many people in the world who are willing to help others when they themselves are having a hard time in their lives.
Meanwhile, others won’t even share a piece of bread with a starving person even if they are rich beyond belief.
That is one of the sad facts of life.
People who refuse to help you when you’re in need do not love you. Stay away from them as they will disappoint you time and time again. They are selfish and have nothing else in mind but their own success and wellbeing.
People who barely manage to make ends meet and still share their crumbs with you are the ones who truly love you and have your best interests at heart. They might not have much but they give what they can. They are willing to give you the little they have just to see a smile on your face because they care for you more than anyone else in this world.
They are those who will stick with you through thick and thin and will never leave you to struggle on your own.
They will do everything they can to shield you from the storms of life.
Love is not about pushing someone into doing what you think is best, it is about letting them make their own choices no matter if they are always the correct ones and believing in them strongly enough to accept whatever they think is best. And instead of being overly-critical, one must offer a shoulder to cry on when things don’t go as planned. Nevertheless, constructive criticism is needed sometimes, as it is also a sign of true caring.
Those who care for you will never leave you behind. They will march through the swamps of life alongside you and you will help each other grow into better and wiser human beings in the process.
Holding those we cherish to unrealistic expectations does us and them nothing but harm in the long run.
Accept your loved ones for who they truly are and understand that without their imperfections they won’t be the people you have grown to love. Because this is how they see you.
Make sure you let those who do all they can to help you fight your battles in life when they have their own mountain of struggles to deal with know they mean to you as much as you mean to them. Treat them with dignity, be kind to them, and assure them that whatever happens, they can always count on you. Because when the world around you turns dark again, they will be the only ones holding a candle to guide you to safety.
