Thank You

"Not every conversation will change you. But any conversation can"

I sat across from you
And you saw the inner demons I was fighting
You listened to my struggles, worries, and fears
Never once judging me for the decisions I have made

You spoke honestly with me
As you have always done before
Opening my eyes to the person I have been unable to see
That person is me

You took your time
Making sure that I was listening
Not letting me dispute what you were saying
Allowing me to soak everything in

You knew I was in a tender place
Wrestling with uncertainty
And you lifted me up
Teaching me that I need to believe

Due to the respect I have for you
Your words left a mark on my soul
Carrying me to more solid ground
Where I am able to stand on my own

I struggle to find the words to express
The gratitude I feel
For you being you
And opening my eyes up to me

Thank you does not showcase
How life changing that conversation was for me
But it is all I have
So, thank you, thank you, thank you

I am happy you were able to share your soul and reveal youself! Belief is sometimes easy; other times hard!
Be proud and stand tall! When your rain is poured, it allows your soul to open a bit more and we can see the truth of you! xXx
