…but that person next to you, that you may or may not care so much about, they’re not going to be here forever.
For your own sake, I encourage you to take a moment to love them, right now, because you value them. Then, love them a bit more because you don’t want to feel the emptiness when they’re gone. Love them some more because they might feel the same way about you. You can also love them even more than that for no good reason. Lastly, love them just because you’re a loving person.
Love as much or as little as you want, just don’t wait to do it.
