A friend is someone who knows your song and sings it to you when you have forgotten it. Those who love you are not fooled by mistakes you have made or dark images you hold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly; your wholeness when you are broken; your innocence when you feel guilty; and your purpose when you are confused.
An African saying
“I love this saying because if you can think about the people in your life who love you no matter what, you can be that for yourself. And that’s why I love it.”
