I want to message you and say that your profile photo with you beau is the most heartwarming thing I’ve seen today. It makes my heart swell. I hover over your profile on WhatsApp.
But I don’t message you. I know you know I see your updated icon and I hope you know my joy for you.
But I also I know a big part of your happiness is from actively changing how you see the world, and I know I’m contagiously cynical.
It’s like how they tell junkies to distance themselves from their old junkie pals.
And you’re ‘clean’ now.
All I can do for you is drag you backwards.
So it feels more supportive of me to keep away.
I hope you know I’m always here.
