So I was having a chat with one of my friends just checking in with them and one of the questions he asked me was how is my heart.
As someone who doesn’t really tell alot of people what I’m feeling emotionally, this shocked me and I was so taken aback by the question it took me an hour to respond. I don’t know if it was because I know that deep down my heart is ready to let in someone to love, or if it was because my heart was hurtng from a family situation, as to why it took me so long to answer the question, or if it was because I truly had to think about my heart in a way that I’ve never thought before.
A simple question that was asked really made me appreciate the friendship that I have with that person, because I don’t often have someone ask me how I am, or on the other hand who I feel confident enough to share with and trust that the information I tell them is just between us.
A few weeks after the chat I went out for dinner with one of my closest girls and as we were updating each other about what was happening in our lives, I told her about the question I was asked. She thought that it was a sweet sentiment and said ‘not many friends especially guys would ask a question like that and truly check up on someone.’ She told me that friendships like the one I have with this person should be truly cherished. That, amogst other things that has happened through our friendship showed her and me that a soul mate doesn’t necessarily have to be your partner who you want to spend the rest of your life with, but you can also have a friend who is your soul mate.
We often get caught up in everyday life that we don’t take the time to learn about ourselves or others and reflect, listen, understand or even let go of a situation. So my question to you today is how is your heart?
