When I was younger, I was afraid of making too many friends. I however loved to travel and believed life to be a journey that would take me to many places and make me meet many people.
My fear for new friends was partly based on what people often say when they wrong others and seek forgiveness; they would say ‘find a place in your heart to forgive me…’.
They talk as if the heart is one scribbling book with no space, one jotter with too many things written on it: errors of people who hurt, memories of those who love, faces, places…
So I thought if I love the way I should, and create one tiny but unique space in my heart for everyone I meet that is worth remembering, then the spaces in my heart will be filled up.
Years have passed and I have met you, and you, and you. It is funny that you have not been satisfied with a tiny space, but you have wanted acres of my heart and have taken them and you still want more. Others have desired spaces and have gotten them. I wait, but my heart is not filled up.
I have not been upset and I am no more scared. I only wish that you cultivate your space and not render it a wasteland.
If however you find a place in your heart for me, I will make the most out of it!
