Can you imagine only needing one special person in your life? You could be uncertain about everything else in the world, but you would eventually feel alright because this one particular person exists. You can be scared, angry, or a sad drunk at 3 o'clock in the morning because your soul hurts, and still, that person can be called up and asked to stay with you— and you know that their answer will never be a ‘no’. Imagine how safe it would feel when you could be anywhere in this world, at any particular stage in your life, and know that you can always go back to this one person who will take you in with open arms.
