Iron Sharpens Iron

 You are different now; I don’t know how to explain it. There is something about you that has shifted. I’m not quite sure how to place it. There is a strength in you that was not there a couple of months ago. You’re still the same, but you are different. What is going on? What are you reading? Which exercise are you doing? Have you made new friends? I can't quite put my finger on it. I know you said your mind has been in a fog for a while, and things haven't been quite right. But you've encouraged me even when you couldn't encourage yourself. You listened.


 I admire your courage to make sense of yourself from the inside out. You make me want to be better even though I am afraid and unsure. I have watched you conquer even as you were inwardly trembling, but outwardly so, so brave. Stoic. Immoveable. I hate to admit it, but I felt judged by you once, but I misunderstood you; the wounds of a friend can be trusted but an enemy multiplies kisses. You have always been honest with me, even when it hurt, and more so when I did not want to hear it. You’ve always been consistent. I can always count on your words to be real, and frank, not to do me harm, but to wake me up and inspire me to be responsible. You bring a sense of peace in the midst of the chaos. I know that if I fall you are there to lift me up. You give me a sense of certainty I haven't felt in a while. Even in your imperfection you keep me steady. You are the same, but you are different now.
