// Non-optional //
There are some things in life we do simply because we can. There are also people we fill our time with simply because they are there. All of that is fine I suppose, but sometimes we are blessed with something better. Sometimes we find a passion so extraordinary, so gravitating, so perfect, that we know it is what we are meant to be pursuing. And sometimes we cross paths with people who are absolutely and unequivocally meant to be with us. Those people who you know without a single shadow of a doubt are going to be at your side forever. Those people who love you for who you are no matter what, but will also correct you when straying from the person they know you to be. They’re the people who will do anything, and be anything for you. The people who you not only share all the good things with, but also gladly and with pride help you through all the bad things. The people who fill us with hope, desire, abundance, warmth, and a sense of deserving. The people who give us everything we could ever need at our best, even when we’re at our worst. The people we love, who love us, not because it’s convenient or easy, but because to the very core of their existence, and with every fiber of their being, they don’t even have a choice.
