Dear Dreamers, you may send this letter to anyone who needs it 🙂
(Someone who runs away)
I hope you’re fine. I worry about you on so many days. Some of those days include the times you’re sitting right in front of me, but you’re far away. You dodge my questions and act like you didn’t hear me over the phone. I let it be. I let you run.
While you run away, whether mentally or physically, have you ever looked back? Have you ever considered that the people you run away from might want to run away from you? Instead, they wait for you to return and then it’s too tough to run away from you. It’ll seem spiteful, right? And you’ll run away all over again.
I might sound angry and impatient, but that’s warranted. I am trying to be kind, yet assertive because as much as it may relieve your pain to escape, it hurts the people who watch you do so. Everyone has a heart and a brain.
It is understandable that you’re not in the frame of mind to see things objectively, but there is only so much space on a wall to accommodate other frames that you exhibit. You could to try to make space for a frame with something to help you, instead of reminders of your discomfort.
We could talk, or not talk about what bothers you. We could share some silence over ice-cream. There is so much we can figure out together, but it’s not together without you.
I’ll be waiting, as I always do, but if you don’t find me there, it’s because I am doing my share of running, too. Don’t worry, though, for I’ll be back. I just hope you find the energy to be waiting for me.

I am all about the little things in life!
