Family, Friends, and Strangers

A simple concept turned horribly complicated.

unconditional love; that's what friends and family should show each other
anything; that's what friends and family should do for each other

But I've recently realized that in today's world not many actually find that their birth parents or other "family" members seem to act or treat them as a family should. many find friends and family in complete strangers. the kind of people whom even though they have nothing they would take you in and treat you like they have loved you since the day you set foot on this earth. as children we are always told to avoid strangers. when in fact the only reason they are strangers is because we ARE avoiding them.

you never know who you might find in the world. a real family. some real friends. people who might ACTUALLY accept you for who you are.

I'm beginning to realize that there are people out there that will accept me and will treat me with the respect i rightfully deserve. I've just got to get out there and find 'em.

for now I'm alone, but in the end ill be surrounded.

"as children we are always told to avoid strangers. when in fact the only reason they are strangers is because we ARE avoiding them."

I like this. A lot.
