Wellllll… I don’t have everything in SL, who does? But I do have enough shoes, hair, dresses, sofas, houses, trees, eyeliners… etc etc to last me for a good while, although having more of anything is always good.. out with the old, in with the new and all that jazz.. but when you’re really struggling at what to give someone who you truly believe has everything… here is a hint:
Give them a hug, give them a shoulder, give them a squeeze, wipe their tears, give them the power to believe in themselves, give them 5 mins of your time, give them encouraging words, give them a good talking to if they are being an idiot, give them the hammer to break down your walls, give them the chance to show you how truly awesome they are, and how awesome you are, give them what you can, when you can… give them your trust, give them your thoughts, share laughs with them, help them through a bad day, just sit with them in silence and enjoy it, give them a tickle if they are sad, allow them to punch you cos you hate being tickled, give them a chance to prove they won’t let you down, just give them you.
Sometimes, all you need is to know that they won’t let you down, they won’t let you fall, they will prop you up when you do, they will tell you you’re being an ass but hug you close at the same time, they will not give up on you, no matter what…
Sometimes it’s not about the material things, is it?
