  • You know its really okay to feel this way. Its okay to put your pride away and to be honest--I want that more than I want you to feign support. There are no "suppose tos" in our friendship--remember that. No one has done this before, no one has been in our shoes--so really its a crap shoot. That's right you and I are a risky and uncertain venture.

    You know that I love you not for any reason that either of us will ever understand. You know that I too am practicing being human. You know that I think its worth the gamble--that you are worth the gamble. And that on good days, or perhaps at night, when I am at my best, Ill risk it all with you.

    You know what it feels like when I hurt you and you know what it feels like when you hurt me. We have had that conversation before too and we are both still alive.

    You know that to whom much is given much is required and we both know we've been given way more than we need.

    You know that our security doesn't rest in things of this world, it never has. It never will.
