If I were in their shoes, I wouldn’t stay either.
Who in the right mind would stay in a blizzard when they can go elsewhere – somewhere with brighter, better weather? It bewilders me that you’re still here. You must be out of your bloody mind.
I’m sorry. There’s no warning, no shelter. I can’t forecast when I will become a blizzard, although I know people who at least try to stay deserve nothing less than rainbows and sunshine.
Although I know, you deserve the best, nothing less.
In my attempts to save myself, I tend to latch onto things, people, and pull them into the storm. How selfish am I, to drag people down with me?
That’s why people leave - to save themselves. It’s their survival instinct. It’s human.
In the midst of it all, I realise that sometimes, what we desire, isn’t what we deserve.
Do I deserve you?
Written for someone who I hope has the strength to stay.
p.s My final exams start tomorrow, and I feel so unprepared. Please pray for me. Thank you.
