  2. The things you are most afraid of will become less scary because they will be held in another’s palm with the utmost care until you forget they were these big, lumpy hangups that once seemed to paralyze you
  3. Giving someone what they need feels like a king-sized heroic feat disguised in a t-shirt and blue jeans
  4. Sometimes all you need is for someone to tell you that you’re okay, rub your back, hold you in a way that stops the world from spinning madly out of your control, if only for a minute
  5. You never thought you wanted or needed anyone to have your back until one day someone did
