Choose someone who will look after you - even when you vomit on them.
Even when you can’t control your bladder anymore.
Someone who won’t see your wrinkled and dried skin.
Someone who will look past the morning complaints.
Because you know what?
You’re not invincible.
Life is so so fragile.
It’s humbling and scary to realise how much of life we can’t control.
So pick someone who will stay with you, even when times get really hard. Because, as much as I wish it didn’t exist, bad and shitty things happen to good people.
It’s heartbreaking but it’s true.
You know how you feel so strong right now?
Well, swim in that ocean for as long as you can because time catches up quickly.
If the ER teaches you anything - it teaches you that.
So you take a ride,
But before that you’ll have a drink.
Nothing much, just a few beers.
And maybe a shot before you leave -
Because they’re asking you to.
Then you get in your car
And you drive.
But things get blurry suddenly
And guess what?
Your reflexes are slower.
And before you know it - black. It’s all black.
You’re not fucking invincible. No one is.
Be safe. Because it really really does matter.
