i was taught a valuable lesson, once, about the meaning of love. it was discussed that the traditional definition uses words like “attachment” and “infatuation” and things that lead you to believe it’s all about losing yourself to somebody, while the buddhist definition claims that it is simply wanting another to be happy. it is courageous and unconditional.
i’ve said it a million times before, and i’ll say it again. this is my absolute best friend. and he’s going through a rough time right now. we are going to be apart for something around two months while he ventures out to get it all under control. not having him around is going to be hard. and as we’ve already discovered from my last internship, it’s not something that gets easier with each passing day. but none of that matters, because i know in my heart that he’s going to come back an even greater person than he already is.
until then, if i’ve ever needed well wishes and positive energies sent this way, it is now. i love him so ridiculously much, and there is nothing in this world i want more than to just see him happy.
