What do you do?
This was a question asked of me and this is my answer ....
I would like to say that I would hold on to them like a drowning person would hold on to a raft suddenly thrown his way; that I would cling to them like a babe would to his mother; that I would realize the value of what I hold in my hand and treat it right.
I would like to say those things and know that they are true, that this is what I will do. But I can't. To say them would mean to lie to myself because that is not what I will do or that is not what I have done in the past.
I would let it go. I would not treat it right. I would probably hurt that person over and over again because I would be too scared of his power over me. I will not let him in because I know that to do so would be to leave myself vulnerable and in harms way. I know that this is not the right way to go about it but that is what I will most likely do.
What would you do?
