Seen and Heard

When you’re with someone, strive to make every day feel romantic in some way, not just one day out of the year. (That’s true romance gents)

No. I️ don’t mean chocolate and flowers, or cheap thrills. I️ mean genuine love and care. I­f this were an Avatar movie, I’d tell you to ‘see them’ and give your partner (not a fan of that word) your most valuable resources: time and attention.

The same goes for all relationships: we all just want to be seen and heard.

What is a romantic relationship but really understanding and seeing each other for who you are and loving I­t­ all, sick days and all. What is a friendship but having someone’s back, and knowing they’ve got yours. What is a true fan but someone who has seen and heard your work and cares enough to give their time and attention to you.

If you genuinely give that to people, they will reciprocate tenfold. Life can be a take and take, a give and take, or a give and give kind of place. It’s up to each of us to choose.

Stay BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
