There’s more than one type of love in the world.
Not everything has to be romance.
Being devoted to someone you care about. And trying to protect them. Or trying to do the right thing for them. Or even refusing to hurt them. Does NOT mean that you’re madly in love with them. It just means that you’re being a good friend.
Because tell me this.
If your friend was brainwashed and forgot everything about you, trapped in a fake town and intended to be destroyed…
Would you freak out?
If your friend was guilty, struggling with darkness inside of them, shameful, and jealous, ready to give up …
Would you cheer them up?
If YOUR friend was asking you to shoot them, to pull the trigger and steal their life just for a city they want to destroy…
Would you put down the gun?
Of course you would! It’s just what a good friend does! It doesn’t mean you’re head over heels for them and want to have sloppy makeout sessions. No. It just means you’re being loyal. Doing the right thing.
Can we not take beautiful bonds like this for granted? We don’t need silly hugs and kisses to make them “Adorable”, because they’re already pretty damn cute as they are. I wish people would just realize that.
Friendship is a type of love. And it’s just as awesome as “love” love
